WHATCOM COUNTY, Wash. — Parts of the western US, Whatcom County included, along with Australia, western South America and South-East Asia will be able to see the Super Flower Full Moon totally eclipsed and turn a shade of red for about 14 minutes tomorrow morning, Wednesday, May 26th. Of course, this is all weather permitting.
The eclipse takes place just a few hours after the Moon reaches perigee, the closest point to Earth on its orbit, making it a Super Flower Blood Moon.
The weather forecast for much of Whatcom County as of 4pm May 25th calls for increasing clouds between 1am and 6am, during the eclipse phases.
