Supermoon plus eclipse equals rare sky show Sunday night




CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) Get ready for a rare double feature, starring our very own moon.


A total lunar eclipse will share the stage with a so-called supermoon Sunday night or early Monday, depending where you are. That combination hasn't been seen since 1982 and won't happen again until 2033.


When a full or new moon makes its closest approach to Earth, that's a supermoon. Although still about 220,000 miles away, this full moon will look bigger and brighter than usual. In fact, it will be the closest full moon of the year, about 30,000 miles closer than the average distance. (The moon's orbit is far from a perfect circle.)

This will happen in Iraq after this midnight and last for 3,30 hours from before dawn till after sunrise.
It will happen in all the European countries and in 50% of the Arab countries.

Will it be followed by any expected cosmic or earth changes like earthquakes for example?

Cool.

Jahovah told me to tell you all that the moon is not made from green cheese. The god says it made the moon from gruyere. Now because I wrote that down, it must be fact.

Notice how they have used a filtered pic of a solar eclipse in this article? First time I saw it I thought, "they must think we are all idiots", then I read selfsames "predictions" and realized, "so many are idiots".

On no, no, no, none of that can happen yet. It's not 2022/2023.

Good spot. I knew something was screwy. Just couldn't figure what.

This is a lunar eclipse:

Clear here as well. Almost the full blood moon. Just needs the coyotes to start up.

I saw a little bit of it though a brief break in the clouds. Most frustrating.

there are several websites which are supposed to give live shots of the moon but all seem to be fully occupied and inaccessible

Everyone in town went to the waterfront. Never seen it so packed there. However, turns out there wasn't much to see (it's an eclipse). We couldn't even see it until someone pointed it out. Kind of the non-event of the year around here.

Really great in Qualicum Beach. We got an excellent view right off the back deck as it cleared the trees.

I would have to agree. However I have seen something called a 'harvest moon' that look huge as it comes into view of as it sinks out of view due to the magnification caused by water vapor in the air. Even during that event when it is high overhead it looks the same. You can make it look larger than normal by putting an object in the foreground and shooting with a lens that is higher than 50mm, the higher the mm number the bigger the moon will look.
