Phased by the moon: SA's in for a supermoon treat

Cape Town - On the night of Sunday, 27 September, South Africa will be one of only six places in the world from where moon-gazers will be able to see one of the rarest astronomical event in years. 

On this night there will be both a lunar eclipse and a supermoon, which means the lightest of moons will be darkened by the Earth's shadow on the same night. 

The event is set to be so spectacular that doomsday-prophets are claiming it to signal the end of the world.

These prophets, however, signaled the same apocalypse before the recent partial solar eclipse in South Africa too. Fortunately for mankind, the sun rose and set without any catastrophe on Sunday, 13 September.

The upcoming astronomical sighting - the supermoon and simultaneous lunar eclipse - is set to be even more spectacular than Sunday's partial solar eclipse. 

After that, the next super rare moon sighting will occur in March 2016. 

In 2017 there will be a solar eclipse over America expected to bring together be the biggest single movement of people in human history for a tourism event, reports Independent UK.

What a coinkydink that earth's shadow is almost exactly the same size as the full moon!

What are the odds, especially considering how a planet the size of earth can have such a large satellite??

And that the shadow's edge is so sharp. So... what does FE say about moon phases? Also, some say the moon emits its own light, but we can see shadows from crater tops, which I'd think wouldn't appear if the light came from within.
