The moon enters the maximum eclipse on September 28 in Cognocoli Monticchi in the French Mediterranean island of Corsica. Tonight’s supermoon-so called because of it is the closest full moon to the Earth this year – is partularly rare as it coincides with a lunar eclipse, a combination that has not happened since 1982 and won’t happen again until 2013.
