Today's Moon Phase

Today's Moon Phase
The Moon today is in a Waning Gibbous Phase. This is the first phase after the Full Moon occurs. It lasts roughly 7 days with the Moon’s illumination growing smaller each day until the Moon becomes a Last Quarter Moon with a illumination of 50%. The average Moon rise for this phase is between 9am and Midnight depending on the age of the phase. The moon rises later and later each night setting after sunrise in the morning. During this phase the Moon can also be seen in the early morning daylight hours on the western horizon. Phase: Waning GibbousIllumination: 92% Moon Age: 17.54 daysMoon Angle: 0.51Moon Distance: 392,125.92 kmSun Angle: 0.53Sun Distance: 149,764,642.22 km

How To Use Evernote: The Unofficial Manual Table Of Contents §1–What Is Evernote? §2–An Overview Of The Desktop App As bright as a hundred million Suns: The clusters of monster stars that lit up the early universe The first stars in the Universe were born several hundred million years after the Big Bang, ending a period known as the cosmological 'dark ages' -- when atoms of hydrogen and helium had formed, but nothing shone in visible light. Now two Canadian researchers have calculated what these objects were like: they find that the first stars could have clustered together in phenomenally bright groups, with periods when they were as luminous as 100 million Suns. Alexander DeSouza and Shantanu Basu, both of the University of Western Ontario in Canada, publish their results in a paper in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. The two scientists modelled how the luminosity of the stars would have changed as they formed from the gravitational collapse of disks of gas.

Are You a Bridge Between Two Worlds? 24th March 2016 By Christina Lavers Contributing Writer for Wake Up World Many of us, who feel we have awoken, currently find ourselves straddling two worlds. One is the old world, the one we all grew up in. How to use Evernote to enhance your productivity and improve your understanding of medicine Readers of the iMedicalApps forums will have seen that Evernote was rated particularly highly by a number of commenters when asked ‘How do you use mobile technology to help with your studies’. As a result of this, I was encouraged to try Evernote out for an extended period and see what impact it could make upon my learning. I am pleased to say that I have now had enough time to explore Evernote and can now highly recommend it as one of the best note taking apps for medical purposes. So without further ado… What is Evernote?

Physics and Astronomy Glossary Technical terms of science have very specific meanings. Standard dictionaries are not always the best source of useful and correct definitions of them. This glossary is not intended to be complete. It focuses on those terms which give students particular difficulties. Some words have subtle and intricate meanings which cannot be encapsulated in a short definition. That's why textbooks exist.

Cosmos is a fantastic show about ideological conversion more than it’s about science Like Carl Sagan before him, Neil deGrasse Tyson is constructing a cult of personality. Also like Sagan, that personality is not his own. In both its versions, Cosmos has had to serve a number of masters — they’ve both had to educate, to entertain, and to bring in advertising. By far their most defining goal, however, the one that most differentiates them from both the Planet Earths and Bill Nyes of the world, is ideological.

What is Intuition? How to Sense Your Intuition By Valerie, contributor for Learning-Mind.com We all have felt at least once in our lives that there is an inner wisdom in us that directs us to better choices, but at the same time an inner impulse that often leads us astray. This inner wisdom is called intuition and its role is to warn us of impending danger and help us make reasonable decisions. It is something that pushes us to perceive truths and lies and protects us from all sorts of pitfalls, acting as a navigator (some argue that it is the voice of our guardian angel).
