The unusual combination of a lunar eclipse and a supermoon, creating a blood red full moon, should be clearly visible in the night of Sunday and Monday, with forecasts of clear skies over most of the Netherlands.
The supermoon occurs when the moon is at its shortest distance from the earth, when it can appear to be 14% bigger and 30% clearer.
Sunday’s supermoon coincides with a lunar eclipse, which is a rare event. The last time they coincided was in 1982.
The eclipse begins in the Netherlands at 02.11 hours, with the total darkness lasting from 04.11 to 05.24 hours. The eclipse is over at 07.25 hours.
