The July 27, 2018 , lunar eclipse will put the moon fully in Earth's shadow for 1 hour, 42 minutes, and 57 seconds. Meanwhile, Mars is now traveling closer to Earth than it has since 2003, so some observers overnight might have also seen what looked like an orange-red star, but was in fact the red planet.
Although the moon is uninhabitable today, we can not definitively rule out that it has never harbored life in the past, according to a couple of American and British astrobiologists who recently published an article on the subject matter in the journal Astrobiology .
The polar bear was shot dead by another employee, the cruise company said. Officials said the attack had occurred when tourists on the MS Bremen landed on the most northern island in the Svalbard archipelago, an island between Norway and and the North Pole.
This region of California is prone to summer fires, with other large blazes reported just previous year in 2017 and in 2013.

Wawona to Yosemite Valley areas of the national park will be closed starting Wednesday, with Sunday as the earliest possible reopening. The closure was heartbreaking for travelers who mapped out trips months in advance to hike and climb amid the spectacular ...
This is the first time when that this deviation from the forecasts of the simpler Newtonian theory of gravity has been seen in the movement of a star around a supermassive black hole . The group of scientists started to monitor the central area of the Milky Way at the European Southern Observatory 26 years ago. Researchers believe that, as observations of how light behaves even closer to a black hole, some of Einstein's theories may come up short.
The "blood moon" effect is created due to light passing through Earth's atmosphere, which scatters blue light, meaning the moon turns a reddish colour. In addition, the event will also be visible in parts of South-America, parts of Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia. As NPR reported , NASA expected Friday's lunar eclipse to be the longest this century.
