|Tonight, we are not only going to enjoy a Super Moon but also a Lunar Eclipse.|
When the moon had appeared above the Bay of Fundy we were on Herring Cove Beach, ready to take pictures.

A super moon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth.
A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes directly behind the Earth into its umbra (shadow). This can occur only when the sun, Earth and moon are aligned exactly, or very closely so, with the Earth in the middle. Hence, a lunar eclipse can occur only the night of a full moon.
Also called a Blood Moon this eclipse will last for about 1 hour and 12 minutes.
And next morning we found the moon over Eastport. Sunrise in the east, moonset in the west.
