good morning, america. president trump delivers his first state of the union overnight. >> this, in fact, is our new american moment. >> touting success with optimist's words and taunting democrats who sat on their hands and our political team breaks down the reaction and congressman joe kennedy who delivered the democratic response is here on "gma." bracing for an arctic blast. the rockies to the midwest and northeast on alert. snow causing these accidents on icy roads and major coastal flooding. now a new system moving in. abc news exclusive, scott baio responding to those sexual abuse allegations, his former "charles in charge" co-star, nicole eggert, saying it started when she was 14. now he's here live only on "gma."
♪ i see the moon rising >> rare moon rising. the event more than 150 years in the making. a super blue blood moon in the sky right now, we're live giving you a front row seat to this incredible sight. good morning, america. a lot to get to this morning. george is in washington, d.c. for that big moment for the president, his very first state of the union address. >> yeah, amy, and, yeah, a group of us had lunch with the president yesterday before the address. the president was saying he really hoped it would be a uniting moment. that's what he was going to try to do. that speech he chose to give did not do the trick last night. it was about the iciest reception i have ever seen inside that house chamber. democrats and republicans as divided as ever. >> and, george, the president even made news walking out of the speech. a comment he made after his address about that secret gop
memo was caught on a hot mike. >> and a kennedy delivering the democratic response. george, fun being poked at him, the curse of having to give the state of the union response. it always seems to happen. this time the question was, was he wearing chapstick? >> was it chapstick? was it drool? we'll talk to him about that. first jon karl starts us off. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, george. the white house had promised an optimistic and unifying speech. much of the speech certainly was optimistic, but from my vantage point inside that chamber this was not a speech that unified congress. for his first official state of the union address, it was an upbeat, positive president trump. >> the state of our union is strong because our people are strong. >> reporter: boasted about an american comeback. >> for many years companies and
jobs were only leaving us. but now they are roaring back, they're coming back. they want to be where the action is. they want to be in the united states of america. that's where they want to be. >> reporter: and he highlighted low unemployment numbers for minorities. >> african-american unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded. [ cheers and applause ] and hispanic-american unemployment has also reached the lowest levels in history. >> reporter: democrats just weren't buying it. they spent most of the night sitting silently even as the president called for bipartis bipartisanship and unity. >> we all share the same home, the same heart, the same destiny and the same great american flag.
we proudly stand for the national anthem. >> reporter: the president laid out his priorities for the year. some clearly designed to appeal to democrats. >> i have directed my administration to make fixing the injustice of high drug prices one of my top priorities. i am asking both parties to come together to give us safe, fast, reliable and modern infrastructure. >> reporter: and making his pitch for his immigration proposal, the president highlighted the horrific flight of two families whose teenage daughters were killed by the criminal gang ms-13. >> many of these gang members took advantage of glaring loopholes in our laws to enter the country as illegal, unaccompanied, alien minors. >> reporter: but the specifics of his plan to protect dreamers and tighten border security drew hiss and boos from democrats. >> under the current broken system, a single immigrant can
bring in virtually unlimited numbers of distant relatives. under our flag -- >> reporter: as congress debates the fate of the so-called dreamers, president trump had this message. >> my duty and the sacred duty of every elected official in this chamber is to defend americans, to protect their safety, their families, their communities and their right to the american dream because americans are dreamers too. >> reporter: the president took a hard line on north korea, highlighting the repressiveness of kim jong-un's regime with the story of this man, a north korean defector who was tortured and had his limbs amputated before he managed to escape the brutal regime. >> today he has a new leg, but i understand you still keep those old crutches as a reminder of how far you've come.
your great sacrifice is an inspiration to us all. >> reporter: as the president sketched out his immigrant proposal, there was one campaign promise that was noticeably absent, no mention whatsoever of the second half of his most repeated campaign promise that mexico would be paying for the wall. george. >> thanks, jon. we are joined by the congressman who gave the democratic response, joe kennedy of massachusetts. thanks for joining us this morning. you know -- >> glad to be with you. >> watching and the president last night it seemed like you were speaking to two very different countries, any common ground? >> i think absolutely common ground. and, look, i think part of what i was trying to articulate last night was that there's a whole, wide series of issues and values that unite americans, the second half of my speech was trying to target. let's focus on that idea of
those values, that vision and that runs -- that's running through all americans. that's not a democrat or republican idea. >> what is your pitch to everyone out there who says the president's got a point, the economy is healthy, it's very, very strong, my 401(k) is doing pretty well and i'll start feeling a tax cut next month. >> it's clearly you're not going to be able to deny the fact that the stock market has gone up under president trump and obviously that's a good thick. i'd point out 50% of americans don't own a single stock and 80% of all stocks are basically controlled by 10% of american families so if we're using the stock market as a barometer for economic success for the entire american country, then i'm not so sure that's the right -- >> not just the stock market, though. low unemployment, wages starting to go up. the tax cut will come to many working class americans. >> this tax cut, some parts of that tax cut are going to come to many working class americans perhaps which are also seeing a cut to the ability to states and localities to make some of the
investments there i think americans have come to expect and you're seeing a massive increase in our debt which is going to, one, potentially lead to massive cuts to our social safety net including, remember, we spent much of the last year trying to destroy medicaid which is another bedrock fundamental program that many americans depend on in order to get health care so press pause, understand we are at a time of robust economic growth, fine, but let's try to find a way to make sure we leverage that for the benefit of all americans and not just wholly weighted towards those at the top. >> you spoke directly to the dreamers last night in spanish. the president spoke about that issue as well. laid out what he calls his compromise plan. are we going to get a deal before next thursday's deadline? >> look, so we better get a deal. this is something that i feel passionately about and i think the vast majority of americans do. the vast majority of congress, democrat and republican, want to solve. we have two big problem, one, up
until a couple days ago, no one knew where the president was on this because he kept saying different things to different people. now we've got a plan that he has articulated. that plan as he knows is a n nonstarter on capitol hill so i would urge the president and his administration to -- if they really want a deal to sit down and start hashing out to make one rather than throwing bombs and then saying, hey, it's take it or leave it. that's not how a deal is made. >> you're the first -- you're the first member of the kennedy family to give a live response to the state of the union. how did it feel? >> that i didn't know. look, i had fun last night. it was an extraordinary honor for me. it was a privilege to be able to do it and particularly to be in a community like fall river at a school like diamond with the students there that are -- it's a pretty special place so i was honored to be there and hope that it's a message that will resonate. >> it is a special place. the city where i was born. one final question, you know, you couldn't completely escape the curse of the state of the union response. twitter had a field day with
your shiny lips so did you bring your chapstick this morning? >> oddly enough, i decided to go a little bit light on the chapstick this morning. more on the coffee, light on the chapstick which is probably a wise choice. >> congressman, thanks for joining us this morning. >> george, thank you. >> so, amy, he followed all the rules perfectly. he got made fun of giving the speech like everybody does and made fun of himself the next morning. >> well done, george. thank you. we'll move on to new developments in the russia investigation. president trump caught on that hot mike speaking about that classified gop memo targeting the fbi. our chief justice correspondent pierre thomas has those details from washington. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: amy, good morning. it certainly looks like that controversial house intelligence report will soon be coming out but there's also new evidence that the special counsel is locked in and won't be distracted. abc news learning that the fbi director and deputy attorney general were both at the white house pleading with the white house chief of staff john kelly
to preinventory the release of the republican house intelligence report before they had a chance to make sure it does not compromise classified information. those pleas apparently ignored as the president's mind appeared made up at the state of the union. >> must release the memo. >> don't worry. 100%. >> reporter: the memo still waiting to be reviewed as new evidence emerges that the special counsel continues to aggressively look into possible obstruction of justice. >> good afternoon, everyone. i'm marche roll low. >> reporter: sources tell abc news the special counsel's office has contacted the former spokesman for the trump legal team, mark corallo apparently wanting to know why he quit after only three months. he left, sources say, in part because he was concerned that some in president trump's camp were looking to unearth negative information about bob mueller and mueller's apparently interested in explosive accusations in michael wolff's new book which portrays him as concerned about the president's role in helping write a
misleading statement aboard air force one about the nature of that infamous trump tower meeting between campaign officials and a group of russians. he wrote, corallo seeing no good outcome believed the meeting on air force one represented a likely obstruction of justice. >> in retro smekt i probably would have done things differently. >> reporter: the president's son said initially it was about russian adoptions but it was actually set up for the trump campaign to receive dirt on hillary clinton. dirt allegedly developed by vladimir putin. white house officials say the trump tower meeting provided no meaningful exchange but a critical question, what exactly did the president know about the trump tower meeting at the time? did the president know the real reason the trump tower meeting was being set up when he helped write that misleading statement? george. >> many more questions. thanks very much. now analysis from mary bruce, also our chief political analyst matthew dowd and, mary, let me begin with you. the president ending that
mystery, nunes memo incredibly controversial. looks like it's going to come out and will explode on capitol hill in part because they won't release the democratic rebuttal. >> democrats have their own memo they want released. republicans say they need more time to vet that so they won't be coming out at the same time. overall republicans say that this memo, those republicans who want this out, say that it shows political bias that may have undermined the beginning of this investigation, may have called into question the integrity of the investigation, democrats say it's nothing more than a polititical hit job. while the president says he wants that out, remember, just hours before the speech last night, the white house told us the president had not seen it and had not reviewed it yet. >> he said it's 100%. let's talk about it more. matthew dowd, you were back in the oval office yesterday, of course, you used to work for president george w. bush but you met with president trump yesterday and he said something to you similar to what he was telling network anchors, he hoped this would be a unifying speech. >> yeah, he related in the course of the conversation how he thought he was going to
compromise on immigration and the democrats would meet him and obviously reading that speech you didn't get any sense there was any room for compromise in that. i was thinking as we were leading in about this is the big -- the bad blood moon that's out -- the blue blood moon, the last time it was advisable was in the 1860s and i think we are as divided now as we were then back when that rose the last time in the united states. i think the president and even i think the democrats would be -- it would be smart of them to look at what lincoln said in 1862, his first joint session speech where he said the dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate for the stormy present. the pile of difficulties we must all meet at this occasion. i think both parties need to get out of the trench warfare and figure out a way to come together and solve these problems. >> boy, it doesn't feel like it will happen any time soon, mary, last night on immigration, sure doesn't look like a deal is possible before that deadline next week. >> no, tied up with a bow. they may get closer.
you heard the president say what he put on the table is a fair compromise. that's not how democrats see it. that's not even how many republicans see it. you have this looming deadline coming. they don't seem to be any closer to finally getting this done and you have to think about all those dreamers that were in the audience last night listening to the president concerned about their fate, whether they could be facing deportation. >> the president said that could happen as soon as march 5th. thank you very much. back to michael. >> thank you. in his address president trump mentioned the stock market surged during his first year in office but wall street is opening this morning rigding it worst slump since mid-2016 and rebecca jarvis is here and good morning. what is behind it. >> good morning. yeah, so amazon teaming up with jpmorgan chase and berkshire hathway had an impact on health care companies and insurance providers because these company, amazon leading the way are teaming up to create their own independent health care company and, michael, whenever amazon introduces itself getting into a
new category, there's a lot of fear in the market of what that could do to the pre-existing companies. we saw it in the book space when amazon got in there and crushed the competition. always the fear they'll do it again? afraid they'll take it over. what is the big picture impact of this drop? >> you look at these last 24 hour, it's a drop in the bucket compared to what's happened over the last year. the dow up 31% over the last year. worldwide stock markets have surged over the last year and if you look at that typical 401(k), over the last year, michael, it is up almost $25,000. >> pretty good. good money. >> for anybody who has money in the market. >> that helps them. another big headline, apple. >> yes. >> under investigation slowing down the iphone. >> yes, so we spoke to tim cook about this a few weeks ago when i spoke with him. the company has been facing backlash over this question of slowing down their phones in order to help with battery issues. now the doj and s.e.c. are reportedly looking into it. when i spoke with tim cook he apologized and reiterated that
apology from the company. >> all right. thank you, rebecca. appreciate it. amy. >> we move on now to the super bowl and the most closely watched gloved hand since michael jackson's. >> hee-hee. >> nice one. tom brady still covering that injured right hand just four days before the big game and t.j. holmes is in balmy minneapolis with more on that. hey, t.j. >> hey, good morning. i'm in training camp this morning. right? well, it's a mock one but this is a spot called the super bowl through here over the next few days to test their skills as nfl players. at you say the talk of minneapolis continues to be -- i don't know how to put this -- tom brady's body part. he showed up wearing two gloves. yesterday one glove on that hand injured in practice a few weeks ago and had to get several stitches but still able to lead his team to the afc championship and wearing a special glove made by under armour, one of his sponsors and the recovery continues. he's making fashion statements
at this point. he will play in all likelihood play well. >> if it's not his hand it's gronkowski's head with the concussion. what do they expect by him? he'll be out there, of course, i suspect? >> yeah, you expect, right. but it's not up to him. he was asked specifically about it yesterday and everybody got excited. he said, yes. you remember that hit. that hard hit he took in the afc championship. he's in concussion protocol and asked specifically you expect to play. he said, yes, but, remember, it's not up to him. he has to pass at thes and get out of the protocol. no matter how he feels he has to be cleared to play and that hasn't happened officially yet, guys. >> all right, t.j., thanks. we know you'll keep us up to date. over to ginger. >> we're going straight to the cold cities brought to you by the adventure card.

this morning, nicole eggert and scott baio both speaking out about allegations of sexual abuse. >> nobody likes to be told what to do. >> reporter: eggert doubling down on her claims her "charles in charge" co-star molested her while the two worked together on the '80s sitcom telling megyn kelly it started when she was 14 and continued quite often through the age of 16. >> the issue with him is that he was our boss and, you know, he also was telling me, you know, you can't tell anybody. this is illegal. i'll go to jail. the show will be over. everybody will be sued. you know, you'll be out of a job and, you know, you'll ruin everybody's life and it's scary. that's intimidating especially when you're that young. >> reporter: the allegations initially playing out on social media with eggert tweeting over the weekend, ask scott baio what happened in his garage at his house when i was a minor. creep. >> i'm going to knock down these false claims against me. >> reporter: he's refuting all her allegations in this post presenting past letters from his
attorneys denying similar claims and citing eggert's past interviews as proof there was no misconduct. but baio did admit to one consensual encounter he says happened after she turned 18. >> i remember her calling me and asking to come over and coming in my house one time and seducing me. >> reporter: but eggert saying that's not what happened. she says it happened at her house when she was 17 and "charles in charge" was still in production. >> did you initiate it or he. >> he initiated it. >> any doubt in your mind you were under the age of 18. >> no doubt in my mind. >> scott baio joins us live now. you heard nicole. she says she has no doubt she was under 18 when the two of you had sex. you say she was 18 and you also say you have proof. >> i do. i do have proof. "charles in charge" ended in the
fall of 1990 and she said in the nik ritchie interview, the dirty.com we had sex when she was 17 and she said we had sex long after "charles in charge" was done. nicole eggert was born in january of 1972. "charles in charge" ended in the fall of 1990, so that would have made her an adult, 18 plus and she said that it happened long after "charles in charge" was done. those are her words. >> correct and that was a radio interview with nik ritchie you bring up. now she says it did happen when it was filming. that she lied at the time to protect the show because that's what she thought she needed to do. >> she lied at the time to -- so i'm trying to figure out which time she's lying and which time she's not lying because the story seems to change quite a bit. so and i can't keep up with her quite honestly. >> i want to bring up nik
ritchie. he issued a statement. had is the man she was talking to and we should point out he and eggert both share a manager but now says nicole was distraught after that interview. she told me it was much worse than she described on air. she said he molested me as a child and i didn't know any better. i can vividly remember that statement. it's not one you would forget. what happened with you and nicole when she was 14, 15, 16? >> absolutely nothing. and i find it interesting, amy, that the moment that her first allegation that we had sex when she was 17 which is not true as soon as that was proven to be 100% false, she comes up with a new story where something happened once a week for years. now, i don't know if you've ever been on a sitcom set but on any given day on every day and especially "charles in charge" which was like a picnic every day, one of my favorite jobs i've ever done there's teachers,
parents, family, crew, producers, my dad. so how any of this could have happened is absolutely impossible and i find it -- i don't know how anybody can believe what she's saying when her first allegation of having sex when we were 17 had been proven to be 100% false and her story keeps changing. it comes up -- she makes up new things. i about the way, i'm not the first person she's done this to. >> okay. she got very specific about you. she says eggert said you had sexual contact with her touching her inappropriately when she was 14. she says and you mentioned in that it was not a one-time incident that that happened like once a week. how would you describe your relationship with eggert on the set? was it strictly professional? >> no, it was great. >> flirtatious. >> amy, i can tell you and i mean this sincerely one of the most fun things i've ever done.
talented girl. we had a great time on the set. everybody liked each other. everybody got along. >> nothing inappropriate? >> it was impossible because when a child is on a set, they're either in school or they're on the set with a teacher and their parents. >> never alone with her. >> no, unless i was in a scene alone with her and directors and producers and crew guys are watching. never. never. it's impossible. and the amount of time that we spent on the show was -- >> you never saw her off the set? >> off the set? i saw her in the studio a lot. yeah, off the set. >> she mentioned your garage in one of her tweets. >> i have no idea what that means. i have no idea. so you can't just keep making up different things. >> i want to ask you about this. adam who played nicole's brother reportedly said he witnessed inappropriate cuddling between you and nicole on the set and
then adam karl who is credited with one appearance on the show tweeted he remembers her crying about you. why do you think they're saying that? are they lying too? >> i don't know what they're saying. i have no idea. i don't know why they're saying it. i don't -- there were so many people on that set. nobody said anything until -- and by the way, nicole and i were friends after our only sexual encounter where she, she aggressively sought me out because she wanted me to be her first so that she would be good for her boyfriend, those are her words. >> you say she seduced you. >> yes. >> you stand by >> absolutely. >> you weren't attracted to her. you didn't seek her out. >> absolutely not. >> you didn't try to date her. >> absolutely not. no. >> something else of interest, you also told eggert to go to police if she had these allegations and she now says she may do just that. do you have any concerns?
>> no. why would i have a concern over something that i didn't do? and rather than take your case to social media where people tend to beat up people like me, why not do it through the proper channels instead of making the appearance because you put up allegations like that and it becomes like wildfire. >> well, we know that you have certainly spoken up loudly and -- >> listen, i have to tell you one more thing, amy. i mean and people are forgetting this. and it's very important how this is affecting me. why somebody would come after me, my reputation and stop me from doing something that i love doing that i've been doing since i'm 9 years old and more important than that, is my wife. and i have a 10-year-old daughter. and my 10-year-old daughter does not need to be hearing about this from friends at school
these false allegations. her job is thought to defend me. my job is to defend my daughter. her job is to be 10 years old and that's why this has got to stop. >> scott baio, thank you so much. >> you're welcome. thank you for having me. >> we appreciate it and we'll be right back.

your friend, could you stand up? >> i might say can you please be nicer. i did it to -- for my sister once. it felt good. >> when we asked boys the same question, the answer was, if it comes to it, you know, we may have to get physical. for the girls on the panel you didn't get a single answer that involved going into someone else's spaces. >> reporter: in fact guarding their personal space may be one of the critical rights they're learning. >> i put my hands here and i'm like don't cross the space. >> what if somebody is giving you a hug and you don't want them to give you a hug. what can you do. >> you can say please stop because if you kind of give some -- a hug to somebody you don't know if they have lice and protect your own space. >> even when they mentioned lice they said that was developmentally appropriate because at some level they were happy that was one of the biggest threats they were thinking about. if you're only worrying about

as you can see these kids 7 to 10 years old already forming their own identities at that age. how do you foster that growth. >> we like to think identity is about being exposed to diverse set of experiences and role models so following a kid's lead and making sure they have lots of opportunities to engage in a wide range of passions whether it's robotics or violin lessons or sports and that's kind of how we make sure that they the vari their identities from those activities. >> you want your daughter to feel like they can do anything. >> of course. >> i want the same thing but what are the building blocks? how do we give them confidence and the strength? >> what we pay attention to in terms of what we praise for our children. if we praise effort and kindness and person so veerns, who they are, what they do and how they interact with others, we're more likely to see those qualities start to amplify as they grow older. want to avoid it around appearance or the i calls only . >> and creates stereotypes. these girls say they like to get dirty and want to be considered
these light frivolous things. they didn't like that at all. >> absolutely. >> you also say that parents, you're the role model for your kids. we all are but at a certain age, you hear the parents say they want to hang out with their friends. >> peers. >> how do you balance that? it's a difficult change to see them move away from you toward peers. how do you support that and still be supportive of that without losing yourself? >> this is the tough effort part for any parent. the beginning of this age range, you know, kids are really listening to their parents but near the end they start listening a lot to their peers and that's with we don't want it to be a push/pull dynamic but follow the kids' lead and meet them where they're at and get to know their social world so as they get older they keep the lines of open communication and as they confront sex or drugs or alcohol parents canunicate. >> so they're not just talking to peers but parents a little bit too. not as much but a little bit. >> rough with 13-year-old girls.
>> i'm still panicking. >> it's going to be okay, michael. >> we're not done and have more coming up. i love what the young lady said, nobody is perfect. for her to realize that between 7 and 10 is pretty powerful. dr. anderson, thank you. deborah. >> watch out for the lice. >> thank you so much. >> thank you michael. time for your "gma" moment. this one has dean. not the james dean you're thinking about but the dog named james dean. watch what this dog can do. it's really impressive.

♪ i you tonight photographer is going to start tonight ♪ >> welcome back to "gma." and been quite a sight this morning, the moment of peak totality superblue blood moment that happened moments ago. >> that is beautiful? really pretty? we have correspondents across the country covering this event so let's check in first with nick watt at the griffith observatory in los angeles and, nick, i know you have a huge crowd there with you. >> reporter:t in the house. there is about a thousand people who got up stupid early this morning to watch this of course, all the way up the coast and in hawaii as well and i'm joined by two young fans of this moon, priscilla and hank. how are you? >> super excited.
>> hank even wore his nasasweat. what do you think, hank? it's a good night, isn't it? it's a good night. >> yeah. >> yeah. >> reporter: also some superstiti superstition. some think it's the moon and sun fighting and we on earth must come together as a good example. other people say that it's a sign of things are going to change on earth and buddhists believe whatever you do during this moon will be magnified tenfold so, guys, be good. be good. >> wow. all right. that is good advice, indeed. >> did you see the little girl, like, yes. >> ginger is goodness i'm having my baby on the full moon. i'd have ten more. >> i've been having some feelings this morning already. >> you know what they say about the full moon and labor. >> and we will see. in a little bit. >> the morning just got better. yes, it did. [ applause ] well, we're going to get more on the science behind -- we're going to get more on the science
behind the lunar phenomenon. astro physic astrophysicist hakeem oluseyi is here. thanks for joining us. what makes a lunar eclipse so special. >> today we're experiencing a third in a series of supermoons and it' the second full moon of the month which makes it a blue moon and because the earth is passing into the -- moon is passing into the earth's shadow it makes it a total lunar eclipse. >> what means to have a supermoon and also what's happening during an eclipse? >> yeah, so what makes the moon super, it is bigger and brighter and the reason why it's closer to earth. the moon isn't always the same distance as it orbits the earth sometimes it's closer, sometimes it's farther away. the closest we call perigee. when there is a full moon then it's a supermoon and, yeah -- [ applause ] and also, when the moon passes
into the earth's shadow that's what happens during a total lunar eclipse so you might ask why isn't the moon completely blacked out? why is it red? the reason why is because the same reason why we have a blue sky and we have red sunsets. the earth's atmosphere bends the light around the earth to make it fall on the moon and the blue light gets scattered out going in all directions and the red light makes it through so the moon appears red. >> i tell you around. you're a super astrophysicist. hakeem, thank you so much. we appreciate that. audience, we all learned a little something and we go to kayna whitworth in san francisco bay and we hear people have spent the night on board waiting for the eclipse. >> reporter: michael, that's right. this is so cool. so i am on board this aircraft carrier and people stayed the night here and slept in the barracks to wake up with the crew and view the super blue blood moon. this family spent the whole night here. i actually heard you telling your boys you're sitting on a
runway right now which is absolutely true. you thought the barracks were a little uncomfortable. >> yeah, just a little bit. >> yeah, a little uncomfortable, he said. what did you think? >> i couldn't sleep. >> he couldn't sleep. but they loved this super blue blood moon and your favorite part. >> it was -- when it started turning red. >> when it started turning red but you kind of eclipse part the best? oh, that's so fun and this woman right here says she hasn't been up this early in 40 years since she had her son so, ginger, we're all thinking about you out here, i have to say. it is absolutely a spectacular experience, though, michael. >> all right. kayna, thank you so much. looked like everybody is up early. got the lawn chairs out. >> i'm checking on ginger. >> i know. >> my best friend said anecdotally in her two decades of practicing that more babies are born around a full moon. >> i gave birth on a full moon. >> you did? >> get a room in a hospital. they said everybody was going --
we'll be watching ginger closely. in the meantime, out to clayton sandell at bluff lake nature center in denver, colorado. clayton, tell us what's happening there. >> reporter: hey, guys, it's about 34 degrees but we still have hundreds of hard-core atronny fans and the moon is behind a cloud but hoping it comes back out watching it all morning and i have fill plaphil with me. why is the moon that? >> well, if you're standing on the moon what you're seeing is the earth blocking the sun and the sunlight is coming through the earth's atmosphere and turing red just like the sun turns red at sunset so the only the red light is getting through. standing on the moon you see th the earth happening at the same time. >> reporter: unlike a solar eclipse a lot can see a lunar eclipse. >> that's right, a solar ellipse is when the moon blocks the sun and you have to be in the right
place at the right here everybody can see it. >> the sun is starting to rise and the moon setting soon. a few more minutes to enjoy it. >> i want to say clayton, kayna and nick for bringing us that.
