Yes, I know I talked about the sun yesterday, but today I am going to talk about both the sun and the moon. . . and the Earth. Why? Because in this month of October, all of them will be involved in eclipses; the Earth, the moon, and the sun. The first one will be the eclipse of the moon by the Earth. That will be tomorrow morning at 03:16 when the moon Earth's shadow starts to creep across it. (04:16 EDT, 03:16 here in East Texas, and 01:16 for you out on the pacific coast) It will take 70 minutes to reach totality. At that time it will be a shade of red. The shade of red color depends on the Earth's atmosphere at the time.
The only reason we can see the moon at total eclipse is because our atmosphere bends light, especially red light, from the sun far enough to illuminate the moon which gives it that ruddy look at totality. Fifteen days later, the sun, moon, and Earth line up again, only this time the moon will be between the sun and the Earth, so a solar eclipse will occur. I would think it would be unusual to have both types of eclipses in the same month.
You all should take a look at the moon during its eclipse, but please don't look directly at the sun, even when eclipsed. Use a mirror and project it onto a piece of paper. BTW, you can also see the solar eclipse in the shadow of every leaf. Really neat to see that! Now, you all have a great day, you hear?
