International Meteor Organization | International Collaboration in Meteor Science Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion After watching the final episodes of the original Evangelion series, I was really baffled. What happened? I understood that it all took place in Shinji's mind, but that's about it. Where was the ending? What really happened? Those answers are provided by End of Evangelion. Also, kudos to the animation in this one. One thing I've also always enjoyed about Evangelion (it's a lot), is the music. Evangelion is a psychological anime, and the characters are and behave thusly. Shortly summarized, the movie was very much like the original series, at the same time also explaining many things the original series didn't.

Types of solar and lunar eclipses An eclipse is an astronomical event where one celestial body partially or totally covers another celestial object. This happens when the eclipsing body comes between the observer and the eclipsed object like in the case of a solar eclipse, or when the eclipsing body temporarily cuts off the source of illumination of the eclipsed object, like during a lunar eclipse. Types of Eclipses With Animations: All Eclipses 1900-2099 Observers from Earth can see two types of eclipses – eclipses of the Sun (solar eclipses), and eclipses of the Moon (lunar eclipses). The term eclipse also finds its roots in ancient Greek – it comes from the word ékleipsis, meaning to fail or abandoned. Eclipses, solar and lunar, have fascinated scientists and lay people for centuries. Solar Eclipses Infographic: Types of solar eclipses. With Animations: Solar Eclipses 1900-2099 There are 3 kinds of solar eclipses: total, partial, annular.

In my mind, it's probably the least flawed segment in the Evangelion franchise. But I guess I know why people are rating it so low. There are two reason people tend to give this movie a low score. The first reason is that this movie is split cleanly into two halves, and the first half, named "Death", is essentially a recap. The second reason people hated this is because of the second half, "Rebirth". There really isn't anything majorly wrong with "Death and Rebirth", the few complaints I have are all rather minor. 2011 Solar & Lunar Eclipse Skywatching Guide | Eclipses, Moon & Sun Photos | Skywatching, Amateur Astronomy There will be two total lunar eclipses and four partial solar eclipses in 2011.

Source: RASC Observer's Handbook 2011 Neon Genesis Evangelion Note: This is a spoiler-free review. Occasionally, one gains knowledge of a certain story or event, in any form, that boggles his or her mind beyond comprehension. You don't know how you feel about it. Do you hate it or love it? It's definitely not just 'average' if it could evoke such uncertainty and conflict within you. Neon Genesis Evangelion is that story for me. Piloting the Evangelion requires a certain amount of nerve synchronisation with its pilot, which is why all the pain of damage served to the machine is also inflicted upon the pilot. NGE is often referred to as a classic masterpiece of utmost influence by the average anime viewer for its powerful psychological implications and startling symbolism. While the basis of NGE is not entirely unique, its manner of execution- as convoluted as it may be- more than compensates for that. NGE is one of 'those' anime. The characters of NGE are one of its strongest points, but also one of its major downfalls.

Bob has been interested in the stars as far back as he can recall His first experience with meteors was a biggie, the 1966 Leonid shower.

Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo [Spoilers obviously] I saw Rebuild 3.0 about a month ago, and during that time I didn't think much of it. It was just another movie in the series, and I didn't analyze it to any significant extent. The action was intense, the plot seemed interesting at the time, the animation quality was superb. Recently however (coinciding with the UTW BD subs release), there has been an influx of discussion posts about 3.0, and I figured that there had to be a reason for such a community reaction to the movie; there must be more to think about. So I went to re-watch the movie again with a bit more acuity and that's when I came to a conclusion: The movie was a huge cop-out. Evangelion 3.0 answered no questions. a) Studio Khara wants us to ask a lot of questions and get curious so that we'll buy 4.0 b) Anno is trying to be clever and allow the viewers to emulate Shinji's confusion after 14 years in sleep by giving the viewers that same confusion. 1. 2. 3. 5. Maybe I had too many expectations of the movie.
