Skywatchers see 'super blue blood Moon'

For Australia, Asia and some parts of the US and Eastern Europe, there was a lunar eclipse, as the Earth passed between the Sun and the Moon. On the very same night, our only natural satellite entered the closest point to us in its elliptical orbit. It is also the second full Moon of the month, commonly called a blue moon. The eclipse began at 10:51 GMT and ended at 16:08 GMT. The word "blood" has been used to describe the deep red colour of the sunlight that passes through Earth's atmosphere to illuminate our celestial neighbour. Supermoon watching This red glow was produced by the same effect that gave us blue skies and red sunsets, Dr Shannon Schmoll, director of Abrams Planetarium in Michigan, said. "So, we have this process of filtering out the blue light and leaving the red light to see. Gliding on a morning glory cloud. The Walking Football Association National Governing Body.

Yonaguni-jima Kaitei Chikei (Yonaguni Monument) – Yonaguni, Japan - Atlas Obscura

The massive underwater rock formation is speculated to have existed for more than 10,000 years, but whether the formation is completely man-made, entirely natural, or has been altered by human hands is still up for debate. The monument was first discovered in 1986 by a diver searching for a good spot to observe hammerhead sharks. After its discovery, Masaaki Kimura, a marine geologist at the University of the Ryukyu, explored the monument for nearly two decades. Kimura remains convinced that the site was carved thousands of years ago, when the land mass was above water. According to Kimura the Yonaguni’s numerous right angles, strategically placed holes and aesthetic triangles are signs of human alteration.

As with most theories of lost civilizations, Kimura has met with controversy about his beliefs. Jardín Botánico de Medellín Joaquín Antonio Uribe // Medellín - Colombia. Artist Residence Hotel.
