lunar moon

From trained stargazers and photographers, to curious voyeurs, the supermoon eclipse treated millions of viewers to a spectacular night sky. This unique eclipse  occurred on Sunday night, Sept. 27,2015. If you missed it, sorry, because it won’t occur again for another 18 years. That’s because this phenomenon only occurs when a full lunar eclipse coincides with the moon’s closest approach to the Earth. On Sunday, the moon was only 225,000 miles from the Earth, making it appear larger and brighter than usual.
The unique beauty of this particular eclipse was the moon’s reddish tint, a result of light being scattered through the Earth’s atmosphere and cast back toward the surface of the moon. As NASA Scientist Dr. Sarah Noble told the New York Times, “You’re basically seeing all of the sunrises and sunsets across the world at once, being reflected off the surface of the moon.”
The most spectacular view could be seen from the eastern half of North America, South America, and the western half of Africa and Europe.
So why is this so spectacular?
When people around the world can experience a natural non- threatening event so beautiful together, it is a wonderful thing. No matter where you live, your gender, your race or nationality, it is the same phenomenon for everyone. As I look to the night sky it is hard to believe that the Earth is the only place where life exists. What exists beyond our solar system? Who exists beyond our solar system? What do you think?
For all of you stargazers, enjoy our men’s constellation socks and women’s constellation socks as well as our and new kids, men’s planet socks and women’s planet socks. They are out of this world!
