In the next few days we will start learning about the moon, its phases, eclipses, and tides. Our timing couldn't be better! On December 21st there will be a lunar eclipse vissable from the united states. It is a great chance to see an amazing astronomical event. You will have to wake up and bundle up, but it will be worth it! The best part is that it will be a TOTAL lunar exlipse where the entire moon will enter earths shadow. Special thanks to Bernatette for her blog on this topic. I included some pictures and two links. The first is a pdf showing where and when the eclipse will be vissable and the second is the link to Bernadettes blog. Check it out and comment!
