Tonight, Sunday, in about 25 minutes, the Moon will be in the Earth’s shadow. If the clouds are parting here in Central Ohio (I need to go outside and see), we’ll witness a total lunar eclipse of a relatively rare Super Moon.
The live shot at Time’s website shows this image at about 9:32pm EDT:
So, I thought this to be a good time to share an even rarer site – the moon passing in front of the Earth – as recorded from a million miles away! You can find the website with description of the special event over at PetaPixel. The video itself is here:
One of the really interesting things about this is that the view is of the rarely seen reverse or “dark side” of the moon. Enjoy the lunar spectacle!
