Houston, we have a Super Blood Moon Eclipse!

Dr. Noah Petro is the Project Scientist for the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mission, currently orbiting the Moon. He has a message for you:

"Houston, right around sunrise, 6:00am (Wednesday, 5-26-2021) watch the moon set as it goes into a total eclipse. Enjoy the spectacle!"

Yes, Houston is experiencing a Super Moon. As the moon sets, it will eclipse and then it becomes a Super Blood Moon. Dr. Petro explains the name: "It is the closest full moon of the year (SUPER), larger than average - about 30% brighter. It should be a really beautiful sight when you see it go into an eclipse and turn that brilliant red/orange/copper color (BLOOD)."

"60 years a ago today --- (5-25-2021) --- President Kennedy set his goal of landing on the moon by the end of the decade. Now we're in the same era now of renewed interest in exploration of the moon."
