Sunday, January 20th will be a special day to observe the moon. There will be a full moon, super moon, and total lunar eclipse which will make the moon appear larger and have a red color close to midnight. The eclipse will begin at 11:41PM and peak a little after midnight. Some parents may choose to let their children stay up and watch since there is no school the next day. If they are not able to stay up that late, they should still take this opportunity to learn about this eclipse online. Click: Don’t miss the spectacular super blood moon eclipse on January 20th.
Our 4th and 5th graders should take every opportunity to learn about our moon phases because it will help them learn important information for science class.
