Supermoon to Coincide With Lunar Eclipse in Rare Celestial Event Sunday Night

September’s Full Moon taking place on September 27th, will likely be one of the year’s biggest planetary events — As the moon will be in its closest proximity to Earth, it will appear up to 14 percent larger!!!

Make sure to go outside at 9:07 p.m. EDT to watch this spectacular event. 

A spectrum of lunar events will occur Sunday evening in an event that won't happen for another 18 years.

First, it will be a total lunar eclipse which means that the Earth, sun and moon will all align precisely which only happens a few times a year. During the exact time of the eclipse, the moon will actually pass behind the Earth’s shadow over the span of several hours. Many of us will be able to see this happen visually in the night sky which will no doubt be a gorgeous site. Check out EarthSky for precise times of the eclipse around the world.

Second, it will be a supermoon which means when we look up at the night sky the brilliant glow will be breathtaking. Picture big, bright and beautiful. Supermoons happen when the moon is a little closer to the Earth and this one will be the closest out of all the full moons of 2015.

Third—this full moon takes place very close to the equinox (mark of a new season) which amplifies its energy considerably. Many will also refer to it as the Harvest Moon because traditionally this is the time of year that the crops are gathered.

Fourth, this particular lunar eclipse will be the fourth of four total lunar eclipses in a row, or the grand finale. The three preceding it took place on: April 15, 2014, October 8, 2014 and April 4, 2015. This pretty rare phenomenon, of four full lunar eclipses in a row, is referred to as a tetrad. The popular reference of Blood Moon has been given to each eclipse in this series and this one will be called that as well.

The moon itself might even have a reddish tint to it but I’ll leave all of us to be the judge of what we end up actually seeing. The coloring is going to depend on the atmospheric conditions of where in the world we see it from. Known as a blood moon, the moon will pass behind behind the Earth into its shadow, resulting in a red tint across its surface.

How does this affect you personally? For one thing, expect relationship dynamics to change. Many relationships have been in flux from as far back as July. With the shift in the planetary alignment, expect to see these issues begin to resolve and settle. Any old patterns that you've experienced will start to fade away, making room for new, healthier ways of communicating and being. In addition, there will be a bigger drive towards commitment and definition in relationships.

Want to absorb more of the moons energy and power? Why not make a glass bottle of moon water? Take distilled or fresh spring water, place in a glass receptacle and leave outside all Sunday night. Drink over the next fews days to absorb the charged and energized water.
