Caught a truly rare opportunity to witness the rare supermoon total lunar eclipse on the same night as the Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Moon Festival. There have only been five supermoon eclipses since 1900 (in 1910, 1928, 1946, 1964 and 1982), and the next will occur in 2033. The supermoon appears 14% larger and 33% brighter than other full moons.
We didn’t initially plan to do any moon watching, but there was virtually no clouds at night. So, we sat outside on the deck under the starry night, drinking hot chocolates, eating mooncakes, playing games on iPad and taking a few pictures from 8:00 PM to 10:15 PM.
