Get ready for the eclipse of the supermoon! This Sunday evening, the United States and much of the world will see skies graced by a bright, big moon that will then be cloaked in a total lunar eclipse. And you can watch the event live on explore!
A supermoon occurs when the moon is both full and the closest to the earth all year, which makes it appear 14% larger and 30% brighter in the night sky. Then, in an even more rare and spectacular phenomenon, the earth will stand between it and the sun, casting its shadow on the lunar surface – the first time a supermoon has been eclipsed in 30 years.
Check out our Lake Tahoe Cam before 7:11 pm PT, when the moon will look massive and begin taking on a reddish tint. The total eclipse will last over an hour.
Take snapshots of the eclipse and share them here and on the Lake Tahoe chat board. We’ll post our favorites on Twitter!
