Coronado High School does not hold many major events around this time during the school year; instead, there are usually a fairly large amount of small but significant ones. For students at Coronado, it is difficult enough to keep up with their more major events and normal life happenings on their own. The upcoming week has an astonishingly great amount of those minor but salient events that students may find enjoyable.

On January 20th, there will be an amazing occurrence that has been around for millennia. There will be a lunar eclipse or blood moon viewing on Sunday night being held by Mr. Ball. “Students and family, staff, and other Coronado community members are all invited to join.  The event will start Sunday, Jan 20 at 9 in my room 404b. The total lunar eclipse won’t start until about 9:30 though,” Mr. Ball stated. This type of celestial occurrence will not be visible in the US until the year 2022, so students are encouraged to join Mr. Ball and his astronomy classes in viewing this rare sight. For more information, the Space Foundation and Mr. Ball have provided some facts and links for the lovers of learning and space to read through; all of this information has been compiled into a link at the bottom of this article. If students have further questions, they can contact Ms. Beatty if they are about the event itself, or they can contact Mr. Ball if they wish to know more on the science aspect of this event.

The eclipse viewing will last until around 10:00, but students will be elated to know that January 21st is Martin Luther King Jr. Day and there is no school!
