September's full moon in the northern hemisphere is known as the "Harvest Moon"—a name that may have originated from ancient Native American traditions.
The last time that a full moon and the spring equinox fell on the same day was March 20, 1981.
The full moon came within 221,681 miles of Earth.
The moon will be 221,681 miles away from Earth and will generate perigean spring tides, which are "higher than normal tides."
Here's how to watch the twin supermoon and total lunar eclipse event online.
Why does this happen? Why do we always get a lunar eclipse during a full moon? What makes it red? My search for answers to questions like these fueled my interest in science.
Next month a supermoon and a total lunar eclipse will coincide in what will certainly be a treat for stargazers.
The moon will glow big, bright—and red.
Three separate lunar events will coincide next week.
The second supermoon of the month will glow a spectacular red.
Between the total solar eclipse, the supermoon, and potential space tourism, the moon was the distraction Americans needed in 2017.
