Preview Clip

Stargazers across Canada are preparing for a rare and spectacular celestial light show this Sunday night. If the sky remains clear, those who look aloft will witness the total eclipse of a supermoon. Mount Allison University physics professor Catherine Lovekin says the eclipse will be worth watching but she says the supermoon phenomenon is a bit overblown. (The term refers to the fact that the moon will be at its closest point to Earth on Sunday night an event known as perigee. As for the eclipse, the full moon will transform into a reddish colour over a three-hour period, starting just after 9 p-m Eastern Daylight Time.)
