The "supermoon" lunar eclipse is coming.

This Sunday night, for the first time in almost 33 years, a total lunar eclipse will be visible from Michigan during a "supermoon" - named that because the full moon will be  closer and appear to be 14% larger than normal. According to USA Today, this won't happen again for another 18 years.

In Lansing, the eclipse will start at 8:11PM and be at it's peak at 10:47PM.

Some people call total lunar eclipses "blood moons", and say it signals a coming "end of the world". The supermoon lunar eclipse is the rarest of the "blood moons".

Just last week, Justin Bieber had the number one song in America.

Happening so close together, I'd say that's a strong warning that the end is nigh.

Here's the full story.
