Tonight we will have the joy of seeing the last “super moon” eclipse until 2033. The celestial event known by many as a blood moon occurs when the moon and earth align, casting the shadow of the earth to cover the moonlight. This event is quite significant because the moon is closer than it usually is to earth, which means it will also seem slightly larger. I am a big fan of astronomy, so I will be finding a nice place outside to sit and watch the event, but some people feel this 4th “blood moon” in two years holds a level of significance that adheres to the end of the world. To be honest, I don’t know when the world will end, nor is it my mission to know exactly when it will, but I do know that a really cool event will be occurring tonight. This lunar eclipse may not be a once in a lifetime level event like other celestial occurrences, but it is something that will be interesting to see. If you live on the east coast of the US, you will have a great view of this entire event, so go outside around 9:30 and catch a free show.
