Terrell County- An unusual, even spooky sight in the sky Wednesday night.

A full lunar eclipse is just wrapping up. The earth is between the sun and the moon, casting a shadow on the moon that gave it an orange glow.

Hayriders at Mark's Melon Patch gazed at the sky and enjoyed the full moon as the shadow began moving across it.

"Well, it was really bright, out there in the field, you can see everything out there instead of being dark like on Halloween night," said rider Katie Daniel.

The next total lunar eclipse won't be until March 2007.

Mark's Melon Patch will be giving hayrides through Saturday afternoon.
