Science Spotlight: The Moon

Stunning Lunar Eclipse Photos Captured by Our Intern, and the Fascinating Facts About the Moon

On Monday, March 25th, a stunning lunar eclipse occurred. Our intern, Alexandra, and her sister Ariana seized the opportunity to capture some breathtaking photos of the moon using their telescope. The images turned out so well that one of them was even used in this thumbnail. Thanks to Ariana for her amazing shots!

Despite its beauty, how much do we really know about the moon? The moon was formed as a result of a collision that took place around 4.5 billion years ago. Interestingly, Earth is not the only planet in our solar system with moons. Jeff St. Clair has more information about this topic.

As you ponder these fascinating facts, here are some discussion questions to think about:

1. What do you believe the moon is composed of?

2. Have you ever observed the moon during the day? If so, what did you notice?

3. If given the chance to travel to the moon, what items would you choose to bring along with you?
