Lunar Eclipse/ Blood Moon

Oh no it’s the end of the world! Just joking! What this basically is that every 20-30 Years the ¬†earth’s shadow covers the full moon. The reason why the moon looks red is because our atmosphere bends the light so it looks red. We got up at about 3:00am BST to see it.

There’ll be another lunar eclipse in 2018 but most of Western Europe won’t see it. The next one that I’ll see will be in 2033. I hope you had good luck seeing it.

How To Train Your Dragon

Last Sunday we went to a book festival and we saw the author of How to Train your Dragon, Cressida Cowell because she had the 12th book in the series published and it’s the last book of the series. The interesting thing about her books was that her childhood ¬†inspired her books.

When she was a child she went to this island that was next to the West coast of Scotland.There was no electricity, no phone signal and no Internet. For the first few years they only stayed for 2 weeks and then they even got a house built, so later they could stay for a whole 6 Weeks. They got a little boat and they caught some nice Eel to eat. There was even a mountain that at the edge it looked like a face and it was completely natural. Now let’s move on. When she was a child she always wanted to have her own pet dragon. There’s a dragon called a sea Dragon who’s 20 times the size of a Blue Whale (imagine that!).

Here's the whole series.

Gifford’s Circus

I went to Gifford’s Circus. There’s a hilarious clown called Tweedy that is really silly. We watched him trying put up a deckchair and you know that deckchairs can be hard to prepare well he had even more trouble than most people and t’was really funny.

We saw some amazing acrobats that were throwing some clubs. It did look epic. Unfortunately the photo is blurry and you can't see much.

I got some candy floss and I didn’t eat all of it and it ended up getting very tough became loads of hardened suger (basically).

My favourite bit was the cannon,when Tweedy got fired out of the cannon and grabbed onto the rope. I would love to get shot out of a cannon and glide back home.
