Skywatchers took in the celestial show Sunday evening, Sept. 27, with the first “supermoon” total lunar eclipse in more than three decades. According to, the event marked the first since 1982, and the last until 2033. The event could be seen locally starting around 7 p.m., viewed here from Grangeville looking east through its waning stage and through the “blood moon” appearance as it progressed and came out of eclipse.

The event was visible to watchers across the Western Hemisphere and parts of Europe, Africa and Asia.
