The world will witness the longest total lunar eclipse today since 2000. Totality, the event where Earth’s shadow completely covers the moon, will last for about an hour and a half. This dramatic event will take place tonight at 10pm G.M.T +1 time and witness the rare vista of the moon changing colours and turning blood red.
Viewers outside of North America will be able to see the lunar eclipse, while us Europeans will miss the early stages of the event.
What is a lunar eclipse?
A lunar eclipse occurs when Earth lines up directly between the sun and the moon, blocking the sun’s rays and casting a shadow on the moon. As the moon moves deeper and deeper into Earth’s shadow, the moon changes colour before your very eyes, turning from gray to an orange or deep shade of red.
Why does the moon turn blood red?
The moon takes on this new colour because indirect sunlight is still able to pass through Earth’s atmosphere and cast a glow on the moon. Our atmosphere filters out most of the blue coloured light, leaving the red and orange hues that we see during a lunar eclipse. Extra particles in the atmosphere, from say a recent volcanic eruption, will cause the moon to appear a darker shade of red.
Can the lunar eclipse be seen directly with naked eyes?
Unlike solar eclipses, lunar eclipses are perfectly safe to view without any special glasses or equipment.

Top Ten Plays from Carmelo…
While attempting to grab an offensive rebound late in the third quarter of a surprisingly tight NBA Playoffs-opening affair between the Chicago Bulls and India Pacers , Chicago’s big man Kurt Thomas got his elbow connected to the head of Indiana’s Tyler Hansbrough. As you can see in the clip , Thomas didn’t swing intensionaly at him but knocked him for six…zzzzz
The Indiana Pacers medical staff judged Hansbrough to be OK, it seems, because he was allowed to return to the game and finished quite strong, ending with 22 points on 10-for-19 shooting — including a nice fast break dunk late in the fourth — to help the Pacers push the top-seeded Bulls to the breaking point.
In the end, though, the combination of a slightly stronger Chicago defense and a seriously unstoppable Derrick Rose 39 points, 19-for-21 from the free-throw line, six rebounds, six assists and three blocks proved too much, as the Bulls escaped with a 104-99 win to take a 1-0 lead in the first-round series.
A feature length documentary work which presents a case for a needed transition out of the current socioeconomic monetary paradigm which governs the entire world society. This subject matter will transcend the issues of cultural relativism and traditional ideology and move to relate the core, empirical “life ground” attributes of human and social survival, extrapolating those immutable natural laws into a new sustainable social paradigm called a “Resource-Based Economy”.
