    Lunar eclipse this Sunday

    Hey ladies and gents,

    If anyone is interested, there's going to be a lunar eclipse this Sunday evening. Plus, the moon is going to be at its closest to Earth this year.

    If your in the Montreal area:

    "Penumbra eclipse begins at 8:11 p.m. ET. At 9:07, the partial eclipse starts. Total eclipse starts at 10:11, peaks at 10:47 and ends at 11:23 p.m. ET. The whole show will be over at 1:22 a.m. The spectacle will begin fairly low on the horizon, at about 12 to 15 degrees depending on location, while during its peak the eclipse will be between 36 and 38 degrees degrees above the horizon."

    A video by NASA explaining this celestial event:

    In 2033 I will be 48 and probably way too busy freaking out about the idea that I'm about to turn 50 soon.

    Ce qu'il y a de spécial aussi c'est que la lune sera d'une teinte orangée d'où son appelation populaire "lune de sang".

    Est-ce qu'on tradurait ça par "bloody moon" or litteraly "moon of blood" in english ?

    Je pense en anglais c'est 'Blood Moon'.

    Il est aussi appelé une lune de la récolte (harvest moon) parce que la lune est en opposition avec le Soleil (quand il est sur le côté opposé de la Terre au Soleil).
