  1. Gorgeous Red Moon From This Weekend's Eclipse

    This spectacular image by photographer Joseph Brimacombe shows the moon in a startling bl0od-red color this weekend during a total eclipse. The Universe Today explains the coloration this way:
    The red tint of the Moon during an eclipse is caused by sunlight passing through Earth’s atmosphere, in effect projecting the colors of all the world’s sunsets onto the Moon’s near face.

  3. Imagine Jupiter Filling the Entire Sky [Video]

    After being inspired by the recent lunar eclipse, Brad Goodspeed wondered what the sky would look like if the planets in our universe were as close to Earth as the moon is and revolved around us. And it would probably amaze us while, at the same time, scaring the crap out of us. Imagine if he'd included all 63 of Jupiter's moons? Ouch. (Click through to watch in HD.)

  5. On December 21st, There Will Be A Total Lunar Eclipse

    American readers, this is for you.  Sorry, everyone else.  In the beginning of next week the entire continent of the Americas will be treated to a total lunar eclipse in the wee hours of Tuesday morning.  I guess the good news for the Eastern hemisphere is that the Fire Nation is less likely to attack. Okay, not that wee, really, it's going to start at 12:30 AM EST, when the moon is about halfway across the sky.  We don't know about you, but 12:30 Tuesday morning is still basically Monday night for us.  If you live further west, it'll happen on Monday regardless of your own internal clock.
