Laatsch speaks with WABI about lunar eclipse viewing

WABI (Channel 5) interviewed Shawn Laatsch, executive director of the Versant Power Astronomy Center, about a lunar eclipse viewing held at the center. “It won’t get completely dark or be blackened out because there’s still a little bit of sunlight that passes through our atmosphere, Earth’s atmosphere, and is bent or refracted onto the surface of the moon and that will give it sort of that reddish brown or copper color, again, depending on how much dust or particulates are in the air,” he said.
