– “Clear evening promises good look at supermoon eclipse”
“Nighttime sky watchers are expected to be double-wowed Sunday evening with a supermoon and a total lunar eclipse.
NASA says this is the first time in more than 30 years the combination has happened, and with Seattle’s cloud cover expected to clear out, those in the Seattle area should be able to see it.
The eclipse begins at 5:11 p.m. Sunday [in Yelm], so it will already be in progress when the moon rises at 6:55 p.m., according to the Pacific Science Center. The total eclipse — when the entire moon is shaded by the Earth — is expected at 7:47 p.m., and the whole show is expected to be over by 9:27 p.m,” by Coral Garnick, Seattle Times.

“This weekend, when you look into the night sky you will be able to see a blood red, larger-than-life moon projecting against the stars; the first in more than 30 years.
