Set your alarm and get your coffee pots at the ready, people. There's going to be a total eclipse of a supermoon in the early hours of the morning next Monday (28 September).
Budding astronomers are being advised to set their alarms for 2am to catch the celestial phenomenon. The first signs of the earth's deep shadow (or umbra) is due at 2:07am, with the mid-eclipse at 3:50am. It will get good from around 3:47am when a "coppery-red tint" should be at its most noticeable, according to the Nautical Almanac Office.
The show will end at 5:27am.
While you might not relish the idea of getting out of bed that early (or indeed, staying up all night), the fact it is a supermoon eclipse, rather than a common-or-garden moon is making those in the know excited.
What is a supermoon?
It's called a supermoon because that is the period when the moon is closest to the earth during its elliptical orbit, meaning the moon will appear almost eight per cent bigger than the satellite is normally.
