Last Lunar Eclipse Until 2010 Happens Tonight!!

How exciting for us! A lunar eclipse begins tonight at 7:43pm and ends at 11:09pm. The mid-eclipse will occur at 9:26pm.

Stated directly from,
"A total lunar eclipse occurs when the full moon passes into Earth's shadow and is blocked from the sun's rays that illuminate it. During an eclipse, the sun, Earth and moon line up, leaving a darkened moon visible from the night side of Earth."

So if you are awake and your parents say it's OK, step outside to view the total lunar eclipse!! Post a comment about what you see and earn yourself 3 tallies, and earn the class a minute in the minute bank!

I saw the lunar eclipse and it was amazing! First, it started turning black. Then, after it was covered, it turned a brownish red. We also saw a shooting star! So we got out the telescope and camera. In the telescope it was awsome! I don't know how good the pictures turned out, but it was fun. My next goal is to see a solar eclipse. By Sean
