Supermoon Lunar Eclipse 2015

     Did you check out the supermoon eclipse last night? If you missed it, don't worry as there will be another one in 2033. Anyway, from what I read on the internet, the supermoon phenomenon occurs when the moon is full at its perigee - the closest part of its orbit around Earth (226,000miles), which is why it appears larger in the sky. According to one of our local weathermen, the "Blood Moon," gets its name from the reddish hue the moon takes as Earth's shadow passes over it.
