CORNWALL – A clear sky is greeting camera buffs and those curious souls Sunday night as a rare astronomical phenomenon is taking place.

The so-called “super blood moon” is taking place, which hasn’t happened since 1982 and won’t happen again for another 18 years.

A supermoon is quite brighter than usual sightings of the moon because its orbit is closest to Earth.

But what makes tonight’s appearance so special is there is also an eclipse taking place – when the Earth passes between the moon and the sun, casting a shadow on the moon.

The eclipse peaked around 10:11 p.m. and will be that way until roughly 11:30 p.m.

You still have time to check it out as the lunar eclipse won’t be complete by 12:27 a.m.
