NASA talks about rare sky show for Sunday

This Sept. 13, 2015 image provided by NASA shows the moon, left, and the Earth, top, transiting the sun together, seen from the Solar Dynamics Observatory. The edge of Earth appears fuzzy because the atmosphere blocks different amounts of light at different altitudes. This image was taken in extreme ultraviolet wavelengths, invisible to human eyes, but here colorized in gold. A total lunar eclipse will share the stage with a so-called supermoon Sunday evening, Sept. 27, 2015 as seen from the United States. That combination hasn't been seen since 1982 and won't happen again until 2033. (NASA/SDO via AP)

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH/AP) – On Sunday night you’ll see something that doesn’t happen too often: A supemoon will combine with a lunar eclipse.

The combination hasn’t been seen since 1982 and won’t happen again until 2033.

NASA Scientist Dr. Alex Young joined Daybreak to talk about what the event means.

The full eclipse of the moon will last more than an hour and be visible, weather permitting, from North and South America, Europe, Africa and western Asia.

Showtime on the U.S. East Coast is 10:11 p.m.
