Get ready. A very special, very rare moon is rising this weekend.

On Sunday, the full moon will be at its closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit while it also goes through a total lunar eclipse. This kind of “supermoon” total eclipse hasn’t happened since 1982, and it won’t occur again until 2033

If you happen to be in North or South America, Europe or Africa, you’ll probably have a great view of the total eclipse that should turn the moon a red color during totality, which is scheduled to begin at 10:11 p.m. ET. Anyone with a dark sky and clear weather at that time should be able to see the eclipse. Read more…

The Eclipse Desktop

Reader Pushkar put together this stark, but open and clean desktop in just a few minutes with a couple of easily configured components. Here’s how he did it.

Pushkar submitted this desktop to our Desktop Showcase, which is what you should do if you want to see your desktop featured here! He’s using Windows, which isn’t totally obvious since there are no taskbars, system trays, or other clear menus. Everything’s neatly stashed away until he needs it. If you want the same look for your Windows machine, here’s what you’ll need:

That’s all it takes, and you can see where each skin and theme is put to use in the finished product. If you have questions though, or want to know more about how Pushkar made it all work, head over to his Kinja blog (linked below) to ask your questions. Let him know how much we liked his work when you do!

Do you have a good-looking, functional desktop of your own to show off? Share it with us! Post it to your personal Kinja blog using the tag Desktop Showcase or add it to our Lifehacker Desktop Show and Tell Flickr pool. Screenshots must be at least at least 640×360 and please include information about what you used, links to your wallpaper, skins, and themes, and any other relevant details. If your awesome desktop catches our eye, you might get featured!
