In this area, we are about to witness a rare celestial event on Sunday evening, September 27th, when we will get the opportunity to see a total lunar eclipse that will give a coppery red color to the moon thus earning it the designation of a "blood moon." Besides which, the moon will be closest to the Earth, earning it the distinction of, "super moon." And because of the time of the month and year that this event occurs, it has a unique classification of being referred to as a "super harvest blood moon." How cool is that?

To make things even more interesting for photographers, sunset will occur at 6:33 p.m. on the 27th and the moon rise will occur at 6:24 p.m. and will reach full moon status in 4 hours which coincides with the total eclipse, meaning conditions for photographing this rare event should be perfect. Key times include the partial eclipse beginning at 9:07 p.m., full eclipse beginning at 10:11 p.m., maximum eclipse at at 10:47 p.m. The full eclipse ends at 11:23 p.m. and the partial eclipse ending at 12:27 a.m. Please, send us your photos!!
