Total Lunar Eclipse as observed from Quezon City, Philippines on October 8, 2014. A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes through the Earth’s shadow, during instances when the Sun, the Earth, and the moon are in alignment. The deep red hue of the moon is caused by sunlight refracted by the Earth’s atmosphere where most of the blue light has already been scattered, leaving only the red light to fall on to the moon’s surface.

Upcoming October 8, 2014 Total Lunar Eclipse discussed in Go Teacher Go

With a total eclipse of the moon set to occur on October 8, Go Teacher Go episode aired on October 2, 2014 covered the topic Lunar Eclipse. In the K to 12 Science curriculum, both solar and lunar eclipses are discussed as part of the Grade 7 Earth and Space Science topics. Students at this level learn about the reasons for the occurrence of eclipses and investigate local beliefs and practices associated with them. This week’s event presents a wonderful opportunity for both teachers and students to observe an actual lunar eclipse.

Go Teacher Go is a teacher-on-the-air program of the UP NISMED intended for math and science teachers, aired through the official radio station of the University of the Philippines, DZUP 1602 kHz in the AM band. Ms. Malu Agad of the UP NISMED Audiovisual Group hosted the episode.
