Red moon rising...

“A dark red shadow crept across the moon last Saturday [March 3rd] during the first total lunar eclipse in nearly three years, thrilling stargazers and astronomers around the world.” (CNN)

I was one of those stargazers that night. It was quite incredible. Actually we were sitting inside and someone mentioned there was supposed to be a lunar eclipse at around that time. So we quickly went outside and stood there gazing at the moon. And sure enough it really was a reddish orange moon. Very cool. Also, I did recently read a book called ‘Red Moon Rising’ which has to do with a 24-7 prayer movement. Also very interesting!

Anyway, for those that don’t know: lunar eclipses occur when the earth passes between the sun and the moon, blocking the sun’s light. The next total lunar eclipse is on August 28th.
