Sometimes it takes something as simple as nature to remind us that everything is crazy and anything is possible. One such moment happened at 3am this morning. Did anyone catch the eclipse? The U.S. was in "prime orbital position" early this April 15. The moon went from bright orange, to blood red, and then to shades of brown and gray. This incredible phenomenon happens when the Earth, moon and sun are perfectly aligned, throwing the moon into Earth's shadow. It really cool, and looked something like this:
If you missed the eclipse, slept through it, were standing under a cloudy patch of sky, or were lame in some other way, don't worry. You don't have to wait until 2032. There are still three more total lunar eclipses in 2014, occurring on October 8, followed by another on April 8, 2015 and the final of the current tetrad on September 28, 2015.
