Lunar Eclipse Tonight!

I am currently looking outside my bedroom window, and I can see the lunar eclipse outside. It looks very clear and beautiful. Soon, it will return back to a white full moon.

What is a lunar eclipse?
Wikipedia says, "A lunar eclipse occurs whenever the moon passes through some portion of the Earth’s shadow. This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are aligned exactly, or very closely so, with the Earth in the middle." The moon looks orange.

Enjoy the lunar eclipse wherever you live. The next lunar eclipse will not occur until 2010!
