Greetings Cits and Civs, you’re listening to a Guard Frequency Special Report. Normally we discuss this kind of spacey, sciency stuff in the Squawkbox, but by the time the show is released on Tuesday, you would have missed this incredibly rare confluence of celestial circumstances by about 36 hours. Yes, we’re talking about the so-called “Supermoon Eclipse.”
At precisely 8:46 PM CDT, 1:45 AM GMT, the moon will arrive at its perigee [pair-a-jee], or closest point to the earth, causing it to appear up to 14% larger and 30% brighter. But wait, there’s more! At 7:13 PM CDT, 1:07 AM GMT a total lunar eclipse will begin. It will reach its maximum at 9:47 PM CDT, 2:47 AM GMT, and will end another 90 or so minutes after that.
