The rare event was visible over much of North America on Tuesday as the Earth’s shadow fell across the moon. The color changes from bright orange to a blood red and brown depending on local weather conditions.

Throughout his career Fred Rogers, both on television and off, emphasized the importance of creating a peaceful environment, and world where all children could grow and learn. “Our goal as a nation must be to make sure that no child is denied the chance to grow in knowledge and character from their very first years,” Rogers said at a White House gathering for Early Childhood Initiative, a program for promoting literacy. Rogers was the recipient of two Peabody Awards, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award, and four Emmy Awards, including the Lifetime Achievement Award, which was bestowed to him in 1997. Rogers, known for always taking the time to remember, reminded the audience that night that thoughtful expression should be followed by thoughtful reflection.
