Exploring the Mysteries of the Moon: Fascinating Insights from Our Interns’ Lunar Eclipse Photos

Science Spotlight: The Moon

On Monday, March 25th, a lunar eclipse occurred and two of our interns, Alexandra and her sister Ariana, took advantage of the opportunity to capture stunning photos of the moon using their telescope. The images turned out so well that one of them was even used in this thumbnail. Thank you, Ariana, for your beautiful shots!

Despite its mesmerizing 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. It’s interesting to note that Earth is not the only planet in our solar system with moons. Jeff St. Clair has more information on this topic.

Here are some discussion questions to ponder:

1. What do you think the moon is made up of?

2. Have you ever seen 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 bring along with you?
