A total lunar eclipse will take place on September 27th,  the second lunar eclipse of 2015, But this one is different, because it will rear its head at approximately 6:40pm. And the total eclipse, according to this Los Angeles Times article, starts at 7:11 p.m. and ends at 8:23 p.m. This total eclipse is quite family friendly!

The moon will appear to be larger than normal as it will be just 59 minutes past its closest approach to Earth in 2015 at mid-eclipse, sometimes called a supermoon.  Continue watching the moon come out of the shadow of the Earth until 10 p.m.

The National Park Service is on board, as it hosts a group led by Focus Astronomy at Rancho Sierra Vista/Satwiwa in Newbury Park from 5-10PM. Telescopes will be available for viewing and photographing the full eclipse until 10pm. Once the sun sets, the telescopes will be focused on the moon as it rises over the hills.
