Lunar Eclipse

Did you know there was a total lunar eclipse last night? We did, so what else is a homeschooling family to do but set the alarm for 3:30 on the morning, turn it off when it goes off and fall back asleep, actually wake up at 5:30, and wake up the kids to shuffle them outside and get a glimpse of this event?! (It was moving back into partial eclipse by the time we got there, but still pretty cool.)

The next one will be February 21

Here's the NASA page:

And a great "Lunar Eclipses for beginners" page:
