Tonight, Mother Nature is treating us to a total lunar eclipse! A lunar eclipse is when the earth falls between the sun and moon, and its shadow is cast over the moon. It's fun to watch the shadow 'eat away' little bits of the moon, and then move over and let the moon appear again.
It's supposed to happen around 9:45 EST.
BTW, does anyone out there remember ever seeing a total solar eclipse? I'm not talking about a partial one. I'm talking 'dark as night in the middle of the day.' I don't know if it's a false memory, but I swear I experienced one as a kid. That would be in the early 1960s.
