Have you ever seen a lunar eclipse?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on February 19, 2008
“Yes. I was in the second grade, so that would’ve been around 1990. We lived in a small town, and my parents got me out of bed and drove to the next town to get ice cream at the Dairy Queen and watch it.”
“I have. It was a few years ago, and I was living in California at the time. I remember it was very subtle. You couldn’t see a line or shape moving across the surface, just a different colored shadow being cast on it.”
“I know I’ve seen a solar eclipse, but I’m not sure if I’ve seen a lunar one or not.”
“I have. It was when I was living in Springfield, Missouri, a while ago. I just happened to be outside and looked up while it was happening.”
