Supermoon and lunar eclipse

It's sa superb supermoon tonight, though this photo doesn't do it justice

Tonight this supermoon will go through a full lunar eclipse! You can read more about it here.

For once we're hoping Treacle our cat does wake us up at 2 in the morning so we can see the eclipse (also hoping that the moon at that time will still be visible from our windows, plus of course hoping for clear skies, which actually doesn't look likely!)!

I watched a lunar eclipse a few years ago from the comfort of our living room (and that one happened around 10pm I think) it's a beautiful sight, definitely worth watching if you get a chance!

Beautiful picture.
It's interesting to know that the rotation and revolution period for the Moon equal is not a coincidence :-)
Have a nice day!
