blood moonYou’ve probably been hearing about tonight’s big astronomical event:  the full moon/harvest moon/super moon/lunar eclipse/blood moon.  The Colorado School of Mines Astronomy Club will be holding a community-wide viewing event on the CSM Campus Kafadar Commons, starting at 7PM (map). Telescopes will be out and people can ask questions and look through the scopes while the moon turns red!  Photo courtesy of Fox31News
