Students had a "howling" experience
While the Math & Science Club were working on the International Cosmic Day with scientists in Germany and other schools in Europe, they took a break to watch the total lunar eclipse.

Full lunar eclipses are often called "blood moons" because of the reddish tint they adopt as sunsets and sunrises seen from Earth reflect onto the surface of the moon. This eclipse marks the second in a series of four lunar eclipses in a row, known as a "tetrad."

If you have not joined the math and science club at Mulvane then contact either Uwe Conrad at or David Hays at for information. 

A special thanks goes to Uwe Conrad, our beloved Wiener Cook!  Everyone had a great time (except for the poor cows that donated to our cause, but we thank them for their sacrifice).  If you missed out this year, then mark your calendar down for the start of September next year!
