Selenelion!
Not only do we get to see another Total Lunar Eclipse in 3 days but this eclipse will bring a selenelion. If you do not know what that is a selenelion is when both the Sun and eclipsed Moon can be seen at the same time. This happens because the refraction of light through the Earths atmosphere causes each celestial body to appear higher in the sky than their true position. I think October 8th will make for a great morning.
