Super Moon Lunar Eclipse on May 26

    Tonight's Full Moon is the closest supermoon of the entire year. Plus, it will be a Total Eclipse of the Moon. If you are an early riser, you are in for a treat. On a Lunar Eclipse, the Earth's shadow moves across the Full Moon, turning it a reddish color. In Tucson, the shadowing starts at 1:47 a.m. with a full shadow at 2:45 a.m. Totality will occur from 4:12 - 4:23 a.m. The Moon will be low in the southwestern as the sky starts to brighten for morning twilight. The Sun will rise at 5:20 a.m. and the Moon sets at 5:51 a.m. Even if you don't watch the entire Eclipse, see if you can at least get up before sunrise and catch a glimpse of the reddish Moon. The Sun is in Gemini which means the Lunar Eclipse will be in Sagittarius. Often this is a Full Moon to celebrate, even if it is an Eclipse. Count your blessings.
