If you missed last night’s Lunar Eclipse, don’t worry because thousands of people around the world filmed it and are already sharing it on the web. Below I have embedded two videos of last night’s Lunar Eclipse.
Applications for Educators
Videos of last night’s Lunar Eclipse demonstrate the utility of video sharing websites for educators. Within minutes of the eclipse’s completion videos were available to use in the classroom. Near real-time video of the eclipse makes learning more relevant and meaningful than having students look at years old videos or pictures.
Use the current videos of the Lunar Eclipse in conjunction with one the free space exploration simulator programs reviewed last month.
