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.
