Miss Sunday's rare lunar eclipse? Watch it right from here
Monday, September 28, 2015, 1:19 AM - A rare perigee lunar eclipse shone in the night sky on Sunday, September 27, visible from coast to coast in Canada. Here's why it was special, along with a chance to watch it again, from anywhere in the world.
The night of September 27 gave us a view of a fairly rare event.
Not only was this a total lunar eclipse, when the full moon passed directly through the darkest part of Earth's shadow, but
It was visible, in its totality, from all of North America,
It was happening on the same night as the closest full moon of the year - the 'perigee' full moon, and
It was the final total lunar eclipse in a string of four - a tetrad.
Watch it from anywhere in the world
If you missed the show, or rain or clouds ended up blocking your view of this eclipse, or if you were in a part of the world that didn't have a good vantage point to see the eclipse, there's still a chance to watch it!
The Slooh Community Observatory hosted a live show via the web, starting at 8 p.m. EDT, Sunday, to highlight this Rare Mega Harvest Moon Eclipse. Host Bob Berman and Slooh astronomer Will Gator - along with a special guest appearance by me, Scott Sutherland - were online from start to finish, featuring views of the eclipse from numerous sites across this half of the globe, including locations in the U.S., the United Kingdom, and even a live report from Stonehenge.
