There will be an extra special show in the night sky this month when a rare supermoon lunar eclipse will occur for the first time since 1982.

The cosmic event will take place on the night of Sept. 27 when two periodic events -- supermoons and lunar eclipses -- will happen at the same time, making for a rare coincidence.

There was a big bright moon last weekend, plainly visible on Saturday night but clouded by the 'official' day, Sunday.

It already looks beautiful.

Think i shall stay up for this one. 03:00-04:00 appears to be the best time to see it.

I was bored and decided to update my signature but i couldnt think of anything to put, so i decided to just put Bollocks!

Was that taken earlier on? Suppressed EXIF data makes me suspicious :hmmm: , but then I suppose you suppress any extraneous data in case case the NSA pick up on it. :D

I've just checked my camera and still seems fully charged and with my longest lens on it 100-300 (so max 600mm equiv on my camera), will see what I get later on.

Moon has been visible all evening though with some light clouds floating about. :):

I took it about 8:50.

Only reason there's no EXIF is because I used Facebook to host it and FB strips out EXIF.

here's the EXIF ...

I'm waiting to go out and take some when the moon is eclipsed and red
