A musical reminder of tonight’s full lunar eclipse!

Tonight, for the first time since 2011, folks in North America will get the chance to see a total lunar eclipse.  It’s supposed to start in earnest around 2 a.m. on the East Coast (11 p.m. West Coast).

Unfortunately I think clouds will spoil the fun for me (and most people on the east coast). But I woke with this song stuck in my head and ended up recording it with my phone before I headed out for work. (My sincerest apologies to Bonnie Tyler).

You can find more detailed information about the eclipse here.

And if you miss it this time, good news: Another blood moon is forecast for October, and again next April.

The eclipse photo I use in the video was taken in 2011 by Fred Espenak (NASA Marshall Space Center).

Cherry Blossoms!

So great: Rhode Island Public Radio reporter Bradley Campbell draws the storytelling structures of iconic public radio shows on napkins – it’s like Kurt Vonnegut’s shapes of stories meet David Byrne’s diagrams of the human condition.
