Super blood moon makes its mark

The super blood moon that occurred Sept. 27 happens once every few decades. The closest full moon of the year appears larger and brighter, thus earning the name “super moon.” Total lunar eclipses occur when the darkest part of the Earth’s shadow, the umbra, completely covers the moon. A combination of the super moon and total lunar eclipse last appeared in 1982 and won’t happen again until 2033.
