The moon eclipsed from 7:00 to 11:30 p.m. and became a “super blood moon” on Sept. 27. Almost the entire eclipse was visible from Eaton. When the moon passed through the southern half of the earth’s shadow, it turned an orange-red color. The full eclipse began at 8:11 p.m., maxed out at 8:47 p.m. and ended at 9:23 p.m. According to the article, “Super Blood Moon eclipse: September 27-28,” the name “blood moon” comes from the fourth and final lunar eclipse in a lunar tetrad. A lunar tetrad is four lunar eclipses equally spaced over 6 full moons. Likewise, the final eclipse of the tetrad occurred last night. The article, “Sunday’s rare supermoon eclipse: What you need to know,” by James Rogers, states there have been five supermoon eclipses since 1900, (including yesterday’s) and the next one will not appear until 2033.
