Coincidence of Alignment
Of course I had to post the picture of the full eclipse tonight. It was spectacular. When the eclipse began, the moon was as white as always, but as the earth shaded the sun and the shadow fell upon the moon, that moon turned red. I learned that it is because the light from the sun bends around the edges of the earth like a sunrise, but around the entire perimeter of the earth and casts a red orange glow onto the moon. The coincidence of this alignment boggles my mind.
