Super moon sunday

Supermoon + lunar eclipse = super-rare.
Lunar eclipses, which can only happen during a full moon, happen a handful of times every year. A supermoon rolls around roughly once every 14 full moons. So the odds of the two events syncing up are pretty rare—the last one happened in 1982, and the next one will happen in 2033.

You've got time to get that perfect Instagram.
The moon will begin to darken at 8:11pm. By 9:07, you'll see a small bite start to appear in the side of the lunar disc; it'll take almost an hour for the shadow to cover it, but at 10:11pm, the entire moon will be in lunar eclipse. It'll start to slide out of Earth's shadow at 11:23pm, and finally return to full brightness at 12:27am. So yeah, you don't have to rush to the window at any specific moment to catch that perfect picture. (That said, if you do want a good pic of the supermoon eclipse, be sure to use a tripod—or at least balance your camera on something sturdy.)
