As this blood moon is occurring, here's something to consider. The Moon is 1.3 light seconds away from Earth. That means, if you shine a laser pointer at a mirror on the moon's surface, it will take 2.6 seconds before you see the laser pointer back.
All of the planets of the solar system can fit, to scale, end to end, between the Earth and the moon. It took the Apollo astronauts 3 days to get to the moon--flying at 7 miles per second.
