Did You Glimpse The Blood Moon?

Did you get a chance to step outside last night/early this morning to look at the blood moon? This was the first full lunar eclipse in three years, and the first in a series of four that will conclude in September 2015.  the Earth will begin to position itself between the sun and the moon for the first of a series of four total eclipses to conclude in September 2015. As for the red hue? As CNN explains it, “In a total lunar eclipse, the full moon turns a coppery red as it passes into Earth’s shadow. During the process, the moon’s bright glow dims, taking on a red hue because of shimmers of sunlight and sunsets seeping through the Earth’s atmosphere.” Gorgeous.

Gorgeous Time Lapse Video Of This Morning’s Total Lunar Eclipse


Super early this morning — I’m talking between the hours of 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. — there was a Total Lunar Elipse that could be seen anywhere (provided there was a clear sky) on the night side of Earth. Though Total Lunar Eclipses — when, according to Wikipedia, “the moon passes behind the earth so that the earth blocks the sun’s rays from striking the moon” — happen every year or so, this one was special because it happened the same day as the Winter Solstice. The last time that happened was 372 years ago, so it was kind of a momentous occasion, even if you’re not into astronomy. Did you stay up to watch? I set my alarm for 3:15 a.m. which was supposed to be right around when the “greatest” of the eclipse occurred. Sadly, when I woke up and looked out my window, it was a bit hazy and the moon wasn’t as bright as I hoped. No worries! Check out this gorgeous time lapse video for the eclipse (as seen from Florida) from start to finish. Ahh, the universe is such an amazing thing. Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Imagine That,” “The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3,” “Food, Inc.,” & “Moon”

Okay, so I just peeped weather.com and apparently every single state is cloudy this weekend. No, seriously. Don’t even bother looking out the window. Just get in your Prius and drive to the movie theater. What’s even opening this weekend? Funny you should ask because Eddie Murphy’s playing a loony (again) in “Imagine That,” John Travolta is a bad ass in “The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3,” your food is killing you, if you’re curious how, then watch “Food, Inc.,” and if you’ve ever been isolated to the point of insanity, then “Moon” might push you back over the edge. And if these movies sound crappy, there’s always last week’s flicks! Keep reading »
