There’s a bad moon on the rise February 22, 2007

March 3, moonrise: that’s when you’ll see the full moon turn deep red.

From the moon’s perspective, the sun will be blocked by the Earth, creating a ring of fire. That fiery ring will be reflected on the moon’s surface. It’s described by NASA as “extraordinary,” and you know when those scientists start rolling out the big adjectives it must be pretty special!

If you’ve got a lonely little space for some non-fiction, highlight this event by pulling out a few moony titles:

  • The moon landing, 629.45
  • Lunar travel, 629.454, especially If you go to the moon by Faith McNulty, illustrated by Steven Kellogg.
  • Earth’s moon, 523.3.

Or take a different tack and pull out moon stories from your J 398s.
