There's a supermoon lunar eclipse coming Sunday night, and it promises to be one of the coolest and most accessible sky-watching events of the year.
A lunar eclipse occurs when Earth's shadow falls on the moon, turning its usually silvery surface a dark, coppery red. This happens when the Earth moves between the moon and the sun.
When a new or full moon is at its closest to the Earth, it's dubbed a supermoon.
It's rare that both lunar events align. News 12's Joe Rao has all the details on what stargazers can expect to see.
