Many students in Mrs. Seff's 6th and 8th grade science classes were excited to watch the lunar events on Sunday night, September 27th. There was a total eclipse of the moon on that night and it happened to be the closest "Supermoon" of 2015.  It was the Northern Hemisphere’s Harvest Moonor full moon nearest the September equinox. September's full moon was also called a "Blood Moon" because it presents the fourth and final eclipse of a lunar tetrad: four straight total eclipses of the moon, spaced at six lunar months (full moons) apart.
