It is a big one folks. We will be getting a total supermoon lunar eclipse while our last Chicago Full Moon Fire Jam of the season happens in the neighborhood tonight.

“What’s actually happening is a confluence of three things. The moon will be full and in its closest point in its orbit around the Earth, making it a so-called supermoon, said Dr. David Wolf, a former NASA astronaut and “extraordinary scientist in residence” for The Children’s Museum. Supermoons appear 14 percent larger and 33 percent brighter than other full moons.

In addition to this, a lunar eclipse will occur. In other words, the Earth will line up directly with the sun and moon, directly between the two, Wolf said. So the “moon will completely fall in the shadow of the Earth,” he said.

Because a lot of light scatters off the Earth’s atmosphere, the moon will not look completely dark but have a coppery red color — hence the blood moon moniker.”Shari Rudavsky

If you are interested in checking it out with your friends & family, folks will be gathering at 6:30pm. The fire action starts at 7:00pm and ends at 9:45pm. [ Full Schedule & More Information here ]
