I was reading news the other day and said.... “By IB Times Staff Reporter | Jun 16, 2011 10:10 AM EDT Spectators across the world were treated with an event of their lifetime on June 15. In what, astronomer’s term as a spectacular show, the white moon turned blood red as the longest lunar eclipse in a decade as unfolded on Wednesday night.”

So I read up on these events.

An eclipse is an astronomical event obscured. It is a shadow between the moon and the sun. There is not just one there are lots Lunar, Annular, Total, and Hybrid Eclipse. The Eclipse occur on other planets.

If there is red moon it is saying “There is going to be a Lunar Eclipse.” So you watch for it.

An annular eclipse occurs when the moon and sun are exactly meet in-line, but the moon will look smaller then so the dark moon will have bigger flames around the moon.

A total eclipse occurs when the dark silhouette of the moon completely cover the sun. Now the Hybrid is a rare Eclipse, it occurs between a annular/total eclipse.

So now you have learnt a little about eclipses.

I look forward to the the next partial eclipse which will occur on July 1, 2011.
