Although wintry skies in the St. Louis region didn’t make for ideal viewing conditions Sunday night as the sun, Earth and moon aligned for a total lunar eclipse, the anticipated celestial event still had many people looking skyward. It also sparked renewed interest in human understanding of the moon.

On Friday’s St. Louis on the Air, host Don Marsh talked with space journalist Rebecca Boyle, lunar scientist Brad Jolliff and St. Louis Public Radio’s Eli Chen about the latest in moon research.

Boyle is a freelance writer whose work has recently appeared in outlets including the New York Times and Scientific American. Jolliff is the Scott Rudolph Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Washington University.
