The Environment Agency is not currently expecting any issues to arise from next week’s Super Blood Moon.

Skygazers across the east of England are getting ready to observe this spectacle.

At 2am on Monday, September 28, the Moon will be unusually close to the Earth and look bigger and brighter than usual it will be a Supermoon.

Within an hour, the Earth will cross between the Sun and the Moon in a total lunar eclipse. Then, at about 4.30am, the Moon will be fully visible again and it should have a red glow from the Earth’s shadow.

It will be the first time in 30 years that there will be a Supermoon and a total lunar eclipse on the same night.

High tides are expected on Monday. The Environment Agency says it will be monitoring the forecasts and will issue warnings if necessary.
