'Supermoon' glows red, bright in NW sky

TRIBUNE PHOTO: DAVID BLAIR - Sunday evening's 'supermoon' eclipse turned the moon red as it rose in the east. This is the first 'blood moon' since 1982. It won't happen again until 2033.Portland photographer David Blair captured Sunday evening's “Supermoon” eclipse, as the moon rose in the Northwest sky.

The so-called Blood Moon eclipse on Sept. 27 was the first since 1982. There won’t be another until 2033.

It’s called a “supermoon” because the moon appears about 14 percent larger and nearly 30 percent brighter than usual.
