Learn how to observe this month's lunar eclipse.
Here's how Chapter 4 in my book Eclipse! begins:
"April 12, 1968, dawned like most other days. It was a Friday, and I was looking forward to the weekend. I wanted to relax after what had been, at least through the eyes of a twelve-year-old, another trying week of school and homework. All this was about to change as I entered my 6th-grade science class that day. Against his usual policy, my teacher, Mr. Clark, had a weekend homework assignment posted on the blackboard. That night, he told us, there was going to be a total eclipse of the Moon. He wanted us all to watch it from our homes and write down our observations to hand in as a report on Monday. Just my luck, I thought.
