Students gather to watch Lunar eclipse

On Wednesday the 8th of October, early in the morning around 2:30 A.M., there was a lunar eclipse party at the high school. There wasn’t a large turn out, but the view was amazing. Everyone gathered on the North side of the track around a telescope provided by science teacher Ted Cramer.

This lunar eclipse was special, because the Sun, the Earth, and the Moon were in a perfect straight line so that the Earth casts a shadow on the moon. Because of all the sunsets and sunrises from the Earth, the lunar surface appeared red. The next lunar eclipse is predicted to be in April of 2015.
