When can I see the supermoon eclipse tomorrow night? (NPR’s Science Tumblr)

On Sunday night, people in parts of western Europe, western Africa, North America and all of South America will be able to see a lunar eclipse. And this one’s extra special, because the moon will be at its perigee – the closest it gets to Earth. Not only will the moon turn red (learn why it turns red here) it will seem larger than usual…

The next SuperBloodMoon (Supermoon eclipse) won’t come around until 2033 (the last one was in 1982), so this is your chance to see it. If the weather in your area won’t comply, plenty of science sites—like NASA—will host streaming video of the phenomenon.
