This Double Header should be on your radar. It is not very often that we are treated with three special events over a three month stretch. The full Moon’s of August 29, September 28, and October 27, should be added to your calendar. In particular, the evening of September 27 should be highlighted in RED … That is the evening when the Moon will be totally eclipsed and at Perigee with the Earth and Sun, ie. Perigee-Syzygy. This refers to the straight line configuration of the three celestial bodies Earth – Moon – Sun
The full Moon’s of August, September and October are all designated as Super Moons.The August Moon is the only one that is also known as a Sturgeon Moon, a Corn Moon or a Grain Moon. In August and October, the centres of these Moons, to the centre of the Earth are less than 361,836 kms apart ,Super Moon worthy. But the full Moon of September 28, is when the moon is 356,877 kms from the Earth, (centre to centre) the closest of all the Super Moon’s!
Starting on the evening of September 27, the eclipse of the moon will last for approximately 3 hours and 20 minutes. Our Moon will be bathed in the Earth’s umbral shadow, revealing that beautiful red hue , we call a “Blood Moon”. Don’t miss this amazing event…..
We at New Eyes Old Skies, will be carrying an excellent assortment of Binoculars and Telescopes for all your evening viewing. Please don’t hesitate in calling Bruce to place orders for that special filter or eyepiece. Clients have already started to place their orders. Call us before the back orders start. This is a wonderful family viewing event not to be missed. Astrophotographers get those cameras ready ! We can order your imagers too…
Man must rise above the Earth—to the top of the atmosphere and beyond—for only thus will he fully understand the world in which he lives.
If there is anything that can bind the heavenly mind of man to this dreary exile of our earthly home and can reconcile us with our fate so that one can enjoy living—then it is verily the enjoyment of the mathematical sciences and astronomy.
~ Johannes Kepler
