EddCast 06: Blood Moon 2015: Total Eclipse of the Supermoon

Aaron Lee (@AstroALee), a finishing graduate student in astronomy at UC Berkeley, and Rion Roberts, a classicist and scholar of Renaissance rhetoric, philosophy, science, and magic, join me in discussing the September 27th Blood Moon. Tune in for some science and mysticism as we explore the astronomical facts of the event as well as the folkloric magic in the air.
