#LunarEclipse set to peak at 7:47p on Sun 9/27 | 1st in more than 3 decades #NASA #GriffithObservatory
Sunday’s supermoon eclipse will last 1 hour and 11 minutes, and will be visible to North and South America, Europe, Africa, and parts of West Asia and the eastern Pacific. Weather permitting, you can see the supermoon after nightfall, and the eclipse will cast it into shadow beginning at 5:11 p.m. PDT. The total eclipse starts at 7:11 p.m. PDT, peaking at 7:47 p.m. PDT. It will be the first supermoon eclipse since 1982, and the last until 2033.
Watch NASA’s live stream from 5:00 p.m. until at least 8:30 p.m. PDT broadcast from Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., with a live feed from the Griffith Observatory, Los Angeles, Calif. Mitzi Adams, a NASA solar physicist at Marshall will discuss the eclipse and answer questions from Twitter. To ask a question, use #askNASA.
"Supermoons" occur because the moon's orbit around Earth is elliptical rather than circular. While the moon's average distance from our planet is about 239,000 miles (384,600 kilometers), the natural satellite roams as far away as 252,000 miles (405,600 km) at "apogee" and gets as close as 226,000 miles (363,700 km) at "perigee."

There are two equinoxes every year – in September and March – when the sun shines directly on the equator and the length of day and night is nearly equal.
The September equinox occurs the moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator – the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator – from north to south. This happens either on September 22, 23, or 24 every year.
On the equinox, night and day are nearly exactly the same length – 12 hours – all over the world. This is the reason it's called an "equinox", derived from Latin, meaning "equal night". However, even if this is widely accepted, it isn't entirely true. In reality equinoxes don't have exactly 12 hours of daylight
