It is one of those times wen you get to see the moon change colour, and it changes it size. It is a great thing you can do with the family. If you want to find out more and ask questions, NASA will be hosting a chat on Sunday, September 27, 2015 from 8:00pm – 11:15pm ET. You can tweet questions to @NASA_Marshall using the hashtag #askNASA or #SuperBoodMoon

If you are not familiar with a Lunar Eclipse please watch this video from NASA.
We looked to Wikipedia for more information as well.
A total lunar eclipse will take place on September 27 and 28, 2015. It will be seen Sunday evening, September 27, in the Americas; in Europe, Africa and the Middle East it will be seen in the early hours of Monday morning, September 28. It is the latter of two total lunar eclipses in 2015, and the final in a tetrad (four total lunar eclipses in series). Other eclipses in the tetrad are those of April 15, 2014,October 8, 2014, and April 4, 2015.
The moon will appear to be larger than normal as the moon will be just 59 minutes past its closest approach to Earth in 2015 at mid-eclipse, sometimes called a supermoon. The moon apparent diameter will be larger than 34′ viewed straight overhead, just off the coast of northeast Brazil.
