Rare Supermoon Lunar Eclipse on Sunday, Sept. 27, 2015

The supermoon lunar eclipse of 2015 will occur Sunday, Sept. 27, 2015. It is a confluence of three events: a full moon; a lunar eclipse, and lunar perigee, when the moon is in the closest part of its orbit to Earth.
The last time such a confluence happened was in 1982; there were just five instances of it in the 20th century. The next one isn't until 2033.
