The lunar eclipse we witnessed in the early morning hours of April 15 was the first in a series of four total eclipses. This rare event is called a Tetrad, with six months separating each subsequent eclipse. When the lunar eclipse is in totality the moon takes on a deep rust red color, an effect caused by dispersed light from earth’s sunrises and sunsets. The second eclipse in the Tetrad will take place on October 8, 2014. So mark your calendars, go camping, stay up really late, and get your mind blown.
