Waiting For The Supermoon Lunar Eclipse

Looking good here so far in central Ohio, USA for tonight's Supermoon Lunar Eclipse. The "supermoon" part comes from the fact that the moon is currently at it's closest to Earth - the moon's orbit is not a perfect circle around Earth, sometimes it's a little closer, sometimes farther away.

A Lunar eclipse happens when the Earth's shadow is seen covering all or part of the moon.

A Solar eclipse is when the Moon passes in front of our star, the Sun - resulting in a partial or total eclipse, dimming the Sun for a short time.
