The StarrySkies Lunar Eclipse Pages
A total lunar eclipse will soon darken the full moon for most of North and South America, Europe, and Africa.
To our ancestors, there were no two more important objects in the sky than the Sun and Moon. They represented the rhythms of life itself. They feared lunar eclipses, thinking it might even be the end of the world. Embedded in the fear was also fascination and wonder. Today we know why eclipses occur, but understanding did not take away the wonder and beauty of this shadowplay of Earth and Moon. Join us in an exploration of our nearest neighbor in space, and the only other world that man has walked upon.
