Sunday evening, people gathered around telescopes and cameras to watch the supermoon lunar eclipse. This astronomical rarity combines an overly-large supermoon with the red-orange hue that accompanies a lunar eclipse, and hasn’t occurred since 1982. The moon’s peak could be seen hovering over campus, ushering in autumn with its warm orange glow.
