I'm posting this in the Paranormal section because it is something strange I remember, quite vividly, from my childhood. It happened 10 to 11 years
ago. I'm curious to know if anyone may have experienced the same event, if they can remember. It happened in Canada, Ontario.
I was around 11 years old when this happened. Me and my family were on our way home from an afternoon of shopping. The moon was nearly full, and
being a cloudless night, it had been bright. Suddenly, everything went dark, as if the moon had been covered by clouds. This darkness was only a few

half moon. Instead of light reflecting off half the moon vertically, ilight ran along the moon horizontally - the bottom half of the moon was lit up,
the top half was dark. In the centre, hovering between the Earth and moon was a ball of silver and red. It caught me by surprise and I became

Upon our arrival home, my parents told my brother and I to get ready for bed. To spare myself some extra time looking at the moon, I took my time
brushing my tooth, looking out the window wondering how something like this could have happened.
Next day at school I asked all my friends if they had seen it. None of them had been out at that time. I know I didn't dream this, unless it was
