ELLIS COUNTY — Tonight (Sunday, Sept. 27) will be the last time until 2033 that you can see a Super Blood Moon.This event will be a combined Supermoon and Lunar Eclipse, aka Supermoon Lunar Eclipse."A supermoon is a full or new moon that falls closest to the fall equinox, and is at its closest approach to the Earth. This results in the moon appearing up to 14% larger in diameter," according to NASA."A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly behind the Earth into its shadow. This can give the moon a red tint."When both of these events occur at the same time, the result is a very large red-looking moon.NASA states this has only occured five times since 1900 and the last time was in 1982.The times for the various stages of the eclipse are below:Partial eclipse will begin at 8:07 p.m. Total eclipse will begin at 9:11 p.m. Peak of the total eclipse will be at 9:47 p.m. Total eclipse will end at 10:23 p.m. Partial eclipse will end at 11:27 p.m. You may also be interested in readingRecords indicate Ellis County may lose Fire Marshal Joe StewartLittle pledges to give back opponent’s $70,000 pay raiseWinter weather causes event cancellations across countyCommissioners support renaming highway after Kyle and LittlefieldPlea deal nets man 30 years in prison for sexual abuse of eight-year-old girlRed Oak woman sentenced to life in prison for murdering husbandRed Oak man sentenced to 20 years for Assault on a Public ServantCommissioner Robinson disrespects officer during traffic stopPublic County Commissioners’ Court meeting scheduled for MondayPublic calls for Ellis County Commissioner Robinson’s resignation ← COLUMN: About the ECSO Civil/Warrants DivisionThe Avenue Church volunteers landscape Gingerbread House → You must log in to post a comment.
