Is this like the Super Harvest Blood Moon? Everyone has different description....

As long as the clouds hold off....
BTW been really appreciating the early morning sky with bright Venus and then Mars and Regulus just a finger apart...
! On October 26, 2015, Venus, Mars and Jupiter will all come together to present the closest grouping of three planets until January 10, 2021! They'll all fit within a single binocular field.

Yeah it's the Harvest full moon and Super Moon and lunar eclipse all rolled into one convenient package. The eclipse will be well underway when the moon rises at sunset.

Looks like we'll have good weather for it.

BTW there's a group of us meeting at Shelter Island on Sunday to shoot the eclipse over the downtown skyline. Everyone is welcome. We'll be at the northeast end of the island near the Bali Hai restaurant at 5:30pm.

Just a reminder that there's a lunar eclipse on Sunday just 45 minutes after sunset it reaches totality. It's also a Super Moon so it should look really cool.
Thanks! What's the prediction on the Danjon Scale? I'm in Teotihuacán if that matters, heh.

The eclipse starts before sunset tomorrow and will be well underway when the moon rises. Totality begins just 35 minutes later at 7:10pm and peaks at 7:45pm.

What makes this so unusual is that the eclipse is when the moon is at perigee. That won't happen again until 2033.

With such a long period of totality the Danjon value will vary quite a bit and even the different parts of the moon will have different values.

Hopefully you can let us know what you see down in Mexico.

Been cloudy here all day so they may mess up our viewing this evening. :(

Sadly, we had cloud cover all day here in Mammoth. We drove out of town to a secret spot to see what we could see of the eclipse, but only saw a dim outline of the moon. Bummer. However, on our way to see that event, we saw this event. Brilliant Sierra sunset over the Minarets, Ritter and Banner. *Sigh*

We got lucky and had clear skies down at San Diego bay. Probably close to 1,000 photographers definitely the most photographers I've ever seen in one spot. Pretty crazy!

I've had my new Canon 7D Mark II for a little over a week now. So much to learn, so much fun…

SNS, waiting to see your fine work. I had to work around street lights and on coming cars on Sunset Blvd. Lots of happy voices spreading out in the darkness from locals watching the eclipse!

We were in Mammoth for the event and when it started, like SL, it was all cloud cover. But then it cleared and we got to see it in full eclipse as in Silver Lake Kid's photo. And watch it diminish.supermoon is just rising now through the clouds on the drive back to SD - beautiful and huge!
