Take a look at the view of the supermoon lunar eclipse from downtown Elmira. This is unlike anything we’ve seen since 1982. It’s a rare event. The moon is the closest it can get to the Earth in its orbit. That’s why it looks so big; about 14 percent larger in diameter.
The lunar eclipse is when the moon passes directly behind Earth and gets in Earth’s shadow.
If you missed it, you won’t be able to see it until 2033. There have been just five supermoon lunar eclipses since 1900.
