On September 27/28 there was a blood moon eclipse and this site has 11 facts about it.  It also includes a clock counting down the total solar eclipse on March 8 2016.

Where I live there were children and adults everywhere outside, in chairs, watching and celebrating this sky magic. And there was also a full moon on December 25 2015, one more reason to get up early just in case the gray faded quite a bit.

Today's poems are Native American moon calendars.
