        Why Does the Moon Turn Red? | Ready Jet Go!

        Trick-or-treat! Or we'll take some science too. In this spooky clip from Ready Jet Go!, Dr. Rafferty explains to Jet and his friends why the moon turns red during a total lunar eclipse (and no, it’s not because of ghosts!). The color red passes through the atmosphere easier than other colors, so even when the Earth blocks the sunlight, the moon will still be illuminated in red.
