Summary Safe to watch with the naked eye, the lunar eclipse should cast a bright orange or red tint across the moon. The lunar eclipse on Tuesday will be the first of four eclipses expected within the next year: two lunar and two solar.
Summary This undated illustration made available by NASA shows the Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) orbiting the moon. The moon will be rising in the western Pacific, and so only the last half of the eclipse will be visible there.
Summary LADEE will eventually be dropped to as low as a mile or two above the lunar surface to make its final scientific observations before a maneuver sets up the spacecraft's controlled impact on or before April 21, NASA said last week .
Summary Two weeks before LADEE's mission expires and ground controllers set an impact trajectory for the dark side of the moon (planned for April 21), NASA scientists sent LADEE to debunk the crystal smog-like glow. "The moon's gravity field is so lumpy and the terrain is so highly variable with crater ridges and valleys that frequent maneuvers are required or the LADEE spacecraft will impact the moon's surface," LADEE project manager Butler Hine told NASA .
Summary According to prosecutors, the decision will be announced sometime this evening. In a statement, they said , "We are not here to be violent. We are here in memory of our son. We are here for protection of all children. We are here to support justice and equality for all people. We lift our voices to ensure black and brown men, women and children can live in this country without being devalued because of the color of our skin."
Summary Hagel was wrong for the job. The rise of the Islamic State has forced him to reverse his withdrawal from Iraq. Given the president's reluctant change of direction, Hagel would have been even less suited to the job as it will be in the next two years: beating back the challenge from the Islamic State, expanding our projected role in Afghanistan and maybe being forced to take military action if Iran can't be dissuaded from its nuclear ambitions.
Summary President Obama spoke at the white House with Mr. Hagel and Vice President Joe Biden. An official with the Bern Art Museum said Monday in Berlin that the museum would accept the collection. Many of the Jewish collectors died in the Nazi gas chambers.
