This is a great opportunity for students to observe the Moon — and for teachers to make connections to in-class science content.
Indeed, as I mentioned earlier, the color or colors that the moon will take on during totality will depend a lot on the state of our atmosphere and can run the gamut from black or gray to brown or red to even something resembling a bright copper penny.
