Another Day, Another Night, Another Red Blood Supermoon
How Many Times Are We Going To Do This?
I swear this is about the third or fourth Red Blood Supermoon I've heard about in as many years.
I think there were two last year.
There are two slated for this year.
Two vibrant lunar eclipses will appear this year across Earth's skies. Weather permitting, people around much of the world will catch at least one of the lunar eclipses falling on May 26 and Nov. 19. (space)
While I'm over here freaking out about a gigantic, spectacular Red Blood Supermoon summoning all forms of supernatural creatures (zombies, vampires, and werewolves oh my), it's really just an amazing lunar eclipse that you'll be able to see with the naked eye.
And lucky us, it's slated for tonight/tomorrow morning. Wednesday, May 26th.
A bigger, better, brighter, closer moon. Now the real question...
Will We Be Able To See The Red Blood Supermoon In Michigan?
It's not a definitive no.
But not really.
The lunar eclipse will be visible about 5:45 a.m. Wednesday until the moon sets at 6:05 a.m. The total eclipse will not be visible, as the moon will set in Michigan before the eclipse reaches totality. Michiganders watching will be able to see part of the moon turning red as it enters the Earth's shadow. Accuweather.com forecasts morning thunderstorms with 89% cloud cover in Detroit.

So you can step outside bright and early this morning at about 5:45 am and see if you can catch a little bit. But your best bet is to follow this link from PBS.
