The Blood Mooon from KO parking lot.

On Tuesday April 15th, parts of the world witnessed a rare celestial event when the Earth’s shadow cast a red tint over the moon. This lunar eclipse started at 2 a.m. central time lasted for about three hours and was seen from Florida to California. However, people who lived in New Jersey and Pittsburg weren’t able to see it due to overcast weather conditions.  The red shadow was caused by the angle of the sun on the earth and the position of the moon behind the earth.The blood moon is a rare occasion that happens approximately every two years. With this being said, the next time we will experience this event will be in 2019.
