It's something that hasn't happened in the last two years, so when this event occurred, we knew nothing of mask mandates or COVID-19. So what has us so excited? On Wednesday, May 26th, it's the upcoming supermoon, the 'Super Flower Blood Moon' and it's the first total lunar eclipse since January 2019.

Weird things happen when there is a full moon (according to my sister-in-law, a former ER nurse) and according to EarthSky, this supermoon will be the closest moon to Earth this year. With it so close to Earth, it'll appear larger than the average full moon, thus the "supermoon." So we can expect some odd things to happen...but how will we be able to tell because almost every day something odd occurs.

It's going to be beautiful to see, so get your cameras ready. The supermoon will be visible pretty much anywhere in the world, but will we be able to see it and the lunar eclipse in our area?

When The Supermoon Will Be Visible

You'll have to get up a little early on Wednesday morning, with the partial umbral eclipse beginning at 5:45 a.m., the total eclipse begins at 7:11 a.m., and the greatest eclipse around 7:26 a.m.

They are calling for showers and thunderstorms on Wednesday, so clouds could be a problem, you can check out the Total Lunar Eclipse map for the best times to observe this phenomenon.

Get ready for the first total lunar eclipse in the last two years. If only we knew then (January 2019) what we know now...On second thought, I'm glad I didn't, I wouldn't have believed it anyway.
