Lunar eclipse tonight!
This just in from Margaret:
Here's something parents and kids might find fun. Tonight there will be a lunar eclipse, in which the moon passes between the earth and the sun. The refraction of the sun's light will make the moon appear to change color from white to coppery red. It will be visible (weather permitting) across large parts of the world. Some places will see a full eclipse, and some a partial.
I'm afraid I might have posted this too late for readers on the East Coast of the United States, but West Coast readers still have a shot. If you're in Europe or Africa, you got the best show!
