Supermoon lunar eclipse first time in 30 years

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Mark your calendars this weekend, for the first time in 30 years you can witness an super sight in the sky.

According to NASA, a supermoon will combine with a lunar eclipse on Sept. 27. Scientists say the total lunar eclipse will make the moon’s face larger than life.

A total lunar eclipse occurs when the full moon passes through the darkest park of the Earth’s shadow.

Sunday’s supermoon eclipse will last a little over an hour. People in the U.S. and most of the world will be able to see the supermoon soar in the sky.
