Local News

A super moon combined with a lunar eclipse making it appear larger than life!

People in the U.S. and in much of the world were able to see it Sunday.

The last time this happened was in 1982, and the next one won’t be until 2033.

Hundreds of people made their way downtown on Sunday to the science center to check out the incredible sights with telescopes. Organizers say it’s a beautiful sight that guests won’t forget.

“Last week, we had a star party here and a girl saw a moon for the first time and it made her cry because it was so beautiful,” said Andy Mikunas, Program Presenter at Science Center. “For me, it’s beauty seeking, you know. I’m here to see something that moves me.”

The party continued until midnight in downtown Des Moines.
