Blood Moon

On Wednesday I got up early to watch a Lunar Eclipse.  A Lunar Eclipse is when the Earth’s shadow made the moon look like it disappeared.  A Lunar Eclipse happens when the Earth comes between the moon and the sun.  Once the moon is completely in the shadow it turns red this is called a Blood Moon. It was too cloudy on Wednesday for us to see all of it, but it was really neat to watch it changing so quickly.  After watching the Lunar Eclipse we watched the first rays of the sunrise come up.  We had to head home to get ready for the day, eat breakfast, and then it was off busy day at school.
