Science Spotlight: The Moon

On Monday, March 25th, a stunning lunar eclipse graced the skies. Our intern, Alexandra, along with her sister Ariana, seized this opportunity to capture some amazing photos of the moon using their telescope. The pictures turned out so well that one of them was even used in our thumbnail. Thanks to Ariana for her stunning shots!

Despite its 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. Interestingly, Earth is not the only planet in our solar system that has moons. For more information on this topic, check out Jeff St. Clair’s article.

Here are some discussion questions to think about:

1. What do you believe the moon is composed of?

2. Have you ever observed 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 choose to bring along with you?
