4:10 am
this little ping-pong ball, the moon, is orbiting around the earth. and sometimes, the moon gets on t far side of the earth, and it gets completely covered by the earth's shadow. - hmm.good try. - i, uh... i think i get it? [sunspot pops and squeaks] - sunspot's right! we don't need a demonstration with ping-pong balls. we can go see the real thing. - go see the real thing? you mean-- - yup, we can fly to outer space and see this lunar eclipse for ouelves. - cool! - wait. can't we just look up lunar eclipses online? i mean, it isn't happening rightow. what will we actually see?

[tires screeching] [engine whooshing] - all right, we're far enough out and your moon. - so cool. these will be the "before the eclipse" pictures. .- so, i still don't get how does this eclipse work? - jet, you notice that sometimes the moon gets on the far side of the earth, and itcompletely covered by the earth's shadow? what makes it a lunaeclipse is that the earth blocks the sunlight that usually lights up the moon. jet and sydney: oh! - wait. isn't that exactly how i explained it back in your yard? arth?
4:12 am
- yes, but it's so fun to look at the actual earth and moon and sun from space. - [sighs] you're right. it is fun. and i'm not even space-sick. - [gasps] i can see the earth's shadow covering the moon. it may take a while to completely cover it. - exactly, sydney. the total lunar eclipse will be later tonight. - is there an eclipse every halloween? - oh! nope. it's just tfun halloween surpriight. the full moon should get all dark, right whenckou're out treat-or-tg. - you mean "trick-or-treating." - ah. right. wonderful earth phrase. - oh, speaking of trick-or-treating, it's time to get back. we all have to get into our costumes. next stop, boxwood terrace! all: excelsior! ♪ - hmm. for mehis halloween?

[sunspot squeaks] ha-ha. right. wait till you see what sunspot a i have planned. - what? - yeah. what do you have pla - trust me, my earthie friends. it's only the best halloween plan ever! [sunspot shrieks] - have you eoked up at the moon at night and wondered why it looks like it's changing shape? sometimes, it looks like it's fuland round, and other times, it's just a half-circle. sometimes, it's not there at all. what's going on wi that?
4:14 am
hi, i'm astronomer amy mainzer. i've gn the moon right here hands. well, okay, it's not really the moon, but you get the idea. th isn't really changing shape, of course. it's just matter of your point of view. as the moon is traveling around the earth, the earth is traveling around the sun at the same time, and that means different shadows are moving across the moon. that's wkes it look like it's changing shape. ♪ we call this the phases of the moon. the earth travels around the sun once a year, and the moon is traveling around the earth once a month. as the moon travels around the earth, we sometimes see the side that's lit up by the sun, and other times, when the moon's between the earth and the sun, we're looking at the part that's in shadow. that's what makes it look ke it's changing shape.
4:15 am
so, the next time someone tells you you're just going through a phase, just ask them which one-- half, full, quarter, crescent-- you get the idea. [laughs] this is my kind of basketball. [ominous howling] [kids laughing] let's make the garage into our halloween haunt-house. - but, carrot, are you suggesting we let people in our garage where they can see all our alien stuff? - yep! - whoo! sounds good to me. but who would want to look at a prete haunted garage? ♪ - ah, halloween. i love it, cody. eait's a detective's drholiday. i can be in costume and go undercover. [cody yawns] it is my perfect chanc to solve three propulsion family mysteries.

tonighres mysteries to solve why was sunspot carrying a green alien head? was jet sittinin a smar or a big clamshell? why did d mrs. propulsion carve so many different vegetables but no pumpkins? this is a big case, cody. ready to our halloween investigation? [cody squeals] goodoo. - aha! stuffy bear. i applaud yoe, creative choice of cost young, gifted mindy. - thanks, sydney. i mean, the coolest commander cressida ever. [siren wailing] ♪ - hello, doctor. - [giggles] [engine whooshing] - ta-da! - [sighs] jet. i'm not sure if it's the best idea - an alien? what? i thought i was an earth cucumber. "hello, i'm carrot and celery's son, cucumber."
4:17 am
[sunspot beeps] - no, jet, that's an alien costume. and i can check "wear a costume" off my greatest halloween ever to-do list. - actually, you probably can be an alien tonight, since its halloween. - brilliant! - so now we just need sean. - you mean... neil armstrong? ♪ the first human to walk on the moon? mindy and jet: wow! - looking od, mr. astronaut. - thanks, you guys. - speaking of neil, i am so excited that it's a oon and a total lunar eclipse tonight. , my mom told me this-- the moon will also look red tonight. but i'm not sure why. all:ed? - hmm, a red moon? another halloween mystery. - and i will hope at a witch flies across the moon on a broom.

[sunspot beeps] - it'll be worthait, sydney. - hmm. - is that your secret plan, sean? - no, this is my-fail scientific method formula to get the most candof in the least amount ime. t equals h plus c squared. treats equhouses plus. and the better the costume, the more candy you get. - [giggles] - want to know my plan? i just on the door and ask for candy. - makes sense to me, mindy.

[doorbelrings] all: trick or treat! - oh! thanks for taking mindy around tonight. she feels so grown-up. - i really do. thanks, mom.
