Earth's Shadow Completely Covers The Moon

October 27, 2004--Posted at 12:00 P.M. CDT

JONESBORO-- "Well tonight the moon will be on the other side, and this would be a full moon normally because the moon is up here, above the plane between the earth and the sun, or below it. Tonight it's going to be just right so that the moon comes into the earth's shadow. This will be the full moon which would also be an eclipse tonight,"said ASU Professor, Dr. Tillman Kennon.

If the skies were clear in your neighborhood, you might have seen a copper colored moon hanging from the sky on Wednesday.

The moon remained a reddish/orange color for about an hour on Wednesday night.

Experts say a total lunar eclipse is not that rare, but the next one isn't expected until 2007.
