Hi there! I was wondering if anyone else watched the lunar eclipse earlier this evening? It was pretty cool! The moon started out full and then slowly it became a smaller and smaller crescent. Around 8 PM EST it became a full eclipse and only glowed a very dull reddish color. There were also tons of stars out. Probably the most i've ever seen! I think a lunar eclipse happens when the earth blocks the sun's rays from reaching the moon. And a solar eclipse is the opposite, in which the moon blocks the sun's rays from reaching earth.
