Check out this map to see if you can watch the rare 'supermoon' total lunar eclipse on Sunday

On Sunday Sept. 27, the 1st super moon lunar eclipse in almost 30 years will take place. But not unluckily not everyone will be able to see this awesome astronomical event, which will finish in a larger-than-usual and quite a blood-red moon. The map shown below marks the regions of the globe that should be easily able to see it (except for cloudy weather). Areas in white can see all stages of the eclipse, but regions in the darkest area won't be able to see the event at all:

So, if you live in North America, the super moon lunar eclipse will start apearing Sunday night at nearly 10:11 p.m. EDT, peaks around nearly 10:47 p.m. EDT, and will last until 11:23 p.m. EDT. But if you don't live in North America, you can use to get better and the exact moment of the eclipse for your area. Sunday's happening is so extraordinary because a super moon hardly happens at the same time as a lunar eclipse. According to NASA, the position of the Earth and moon will make the eclipse seem up to 14% bigger and 30% brighter. As the moon becomes full, sunlight moving through Earth's atmosphere will make the moon look red:

Another super moon total lunar eclipse will not happen again until 2033, so you don't want to miss this one!
