On Sunday (Sept. 27, 2015) Earth's shadow will begin to dim our moon, which will appear unusually large in the sky.

The supermoon lunar eclipse of 2015 is a confluence of three events: a full moon; a lunar eclipse, and lunar perigee, when the moon is in the closest part of its orbit to Earth. It will be the first time since 1982 that a Supermoon will coincide with a lunar eclipse.

While astronomers are excited about the rare event, others think it's a sign the end is near.

John Hagee, a Christian minister from Texas, is among those who has argued that such rare events surely spell out doom.

"The coming four blood moons points to a world-shaking event that will happen between April 2014 and October 2015," he told CNN.
