Getting up on Mondays is hard. Always.

Why not putting it to extremes not to miss a

lunar eclipses that coincide with a supermoon.

A very rare occasion! They happened since 1900 only: 1910, 1946, 1964 and 1982.

Next is on Monday, 28th September 2015 at 03:46 followed by the full moon at 04:50. Something rare and spectacular to watch and to take pictures!

And worthwhile to leave the bed early ;-)

From our meeting point we shall have a great view on both, the eclipse and the full moon a few minutes later with some high buildings framing the scene.

I will try to arrange also for some hot stuff to drink while waiting ;-)

There is a NASA video describing the event

(from an American perspective, where it occurs late into the evening of Sunday, 27 September):
