Full Moon Eclipse

I'm being followed by a moon shadow, moon shadow-moon shadow (Moon Shadow - Cat Stevens)

If you happen to be looking at the sky tonight at about 7.26 p.m. pacific standard time, the moon will turn into a psychedelic red-orange color with hints of turquoise. 

So if it's a clear night with no clouds, by all means get out of the house (if you are on the freeway don't get into any accidents) and indulge in the beauty of this rare universe moment called a "full moon eclipse" because the next one won't be visible till December 2010.

Here's the code behind the magic (from the bits and pieces I read): The "total eclipse" occurs when a full moon moves in the earth's shadow and what makes it visible is the sunlight passing through the earth's atmosphere. The turquoise color is created when some of the scattered sunlight in the upper stratosphere touches the ozone layer. So yeah, take a deep breath and relax, it's not the drugs.

The eclipse will be visible in most parts of North America, South America, Western Europe, Africa, and Western Asia.

Currently I have acquired an interest in the study of the moon phrases, it's mentally captivating. You can tell time, or when the moon will rise at night, when it will descend, and when the new month will come in, very interesting. This is how the ISRAELITES foretold their festivities.
