A total lunar eclipse will begin within the next hour. The eclipse will be visible over Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Americas.
It is the latter of two total lunar eclipses in 2015, and the final in a tetrad (four total lunar eclipses in series).
The moon will appear to be larger than normal as the moon will be just 59 minutes past its closest approach to Earth in 2015 at mid-eclipse, sometimes called a supermoon. In celtic folklore the moon at apears closest to the autumnal equanox is the Harvest Moon.
Some folks claim that this is another signal that the end of the world is upon us. We’ve heard this before. We’re not worried. For the moon gazers tonight, we’ve put together this podcast. It’s music about the moon and it’s affect on us. Enjoy!
