Supermoon - super tide! Info on the last of a four Blood Moon series and Photos of the Day.

Get ready for the unusually large and beautiful moon tonight - the Blood Moon rises - as do the tides it influences!

There will be a supermoon tonight, which will look brighter and larger since it is closer to Earth. There will also be a total lunar eclipse, also known as a blood moon, tonight and will have a reddish color. A supermoon eclipse will not happen again for another 18 years - Source: Miami-Dade County.

This is the last of a four (4) blood moon series.   The moon takes on this color during the eclipse as it passes through the Earth's shadow, which is the color of a desert sunset.

See my prior post of April 14, 2014: Howling at the 'Blood Moon"! Coming Tues, 4/15. Ask NASA Experts About the Total Lunar Eclipse | NASA

Here are some "Photos of the Day" from the People's Dock at Deering as well as the boat ramp at Black point taken earlier this morning, Sunday, 9/27/15, while Alexandra and I were out bicycling:
