Missouri’s red moon rising


Sedalians may be wondering why the rising, waning gibbous moon has had a red cast the last few nights. According to the National Weather Service, wild fires in Canada have sent a plume of smoke into the Central United States creating the copper coloring. As the moon rises it begins to lose the reddish glow. Space.com urges people to keep watching the night sky for a rare supermoon and total lunar eclipse that will create a Blood Moon on Sept. 27. “It will be the first supermoon eclipse since 1982, and the last until 2033,” NASA officials said in the article.
