A lunar eclipse

This weekend, people around the world will witness an intergalactic phenomenon: the lunar eclipse. For centuries the disappearance of the moon has inspired artists. Weekend America listens in on the effect that a celestial muse has had on writers.

Musings From Producer Marc Sanchez...

What do you think a lunar eclipse sounds like? What kind of music goes best with a lunar eclipse? Where is the best place to watch an eclipse? We talked to a group of people, including a poet, an astronaut, an author, and an astrophysicist, same questions and came up with answers as varied as the solar system.
