So today was the total lunar eclipse.  Now this is when the earth’s shadow covers the moon.  When this happens the moon will appear a red color.  A lunar eclipse can only happen if the moon is full.  A total lunar eclipse can happen up to three times a year.  However, it can only be seen at different parts of the world of those days.  For example, this year’s total lunar eclipse could be observed only in the Central Pacific, the Americas, Africa and Europe.  This type of eclipse is fine to look at, however solar eclipses can be so bring that they can harm your retinas.

For today’s item, you are to experience a total lunar eclipse sometime.  It is truly a sight to see.
