See Supermoon Lunar Eclipse Tonight

Full moons occur every 30 days or so. Supermoons, every 411.8 days. Supermoon lunar eclipses? We're talking super rare. The last one took place back in 1982. The next one arrives in 2033. Discouraged? Don't be. You're in luck: There's one happening tonight! In other words, put NBC Sunday Night Football (or Family Guy... Season 14 premiere!) on pause, anytime after 9:07 PM (start of the lunar clipse) and especially at 10:47 PM (maximum visibility.) The show ends at 12:27 AM. Best of all, unlike solar eclipses, you can (safely) see it from just about anywhere (weather permitting, of course.)
