Total Lunar Eclipse Coming Sunday Night

Gtelescopeene Zajac, Put-in-Bay Village Astronomer, will host an open viewing of the Total Lunar Eclipse on the upper, southern plaza at Perry’s Monument on Sunday night, 27 September 2015.  The eclipse begins at 9:07 pm, at Put in Bay, when the moon enters into Earth’s darkest shadow–called the umbra. Totality begins at 10:11 pm. Maximum eclipse is 10:45 pm. Taking a time-lapse picture of your earthly surroundings could produce your local world in an eerie red glow from the reddish moonlight. Being a Supermoon means the moon appears 14% larger and 30% brighter because the moon will be at perigee (closest to the Earth). The Total Lunar Eclipse ends here around 11:23  pm.
