2 Cents: Supermoon

Central PA Live

A big night for astronomers both professional and otherwise.

Those who looked upward Sunday night and earl Monday morning saw a super blood wolf moon.

This means a total lunar eclipse happened at the same time as a supermoon.

This happens when a full moon comes into the earth’s shadow and darkens. The sunlight that passes through the atmosphere of the earth makes the moon appear red.

Weather conditions play a factor, for some the moon appeared blood-red, brick colored or rusty.

The U.S. won’t see another total lunar eclipse until 2022.
