Kurt Russell and his stunt double Dick Warlock on the set of ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK. - RET
The theme of last night’s dancing with the stars was reliving the memorable years. And that meant Alfonso Ribeiro reintroduced us to his famous dance — The Carlton — from the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
There’s another lunar eclipse this year and it’s happening tomorrow night! (That’s Tuesday night — in other words the wee hours of Wednesday morning). Europe and Africa will be left out this time around, but viewers in North America and Asia will get the chance to see the moon pass through the earth’s shadow. Details from NASA here.
This eclipse is extra special because it might be a rare selenelion.
Don’t ask me how to pronounce that word, but here’s what it means: the refraction of light through Earth’s atmosphere makes both sun and moon appear higher in the sky then they really are. So at moonset/sunrise on Wednesday morning, a few lucky observers east of the Mississippi might glimpse the sun and the eclipsed moon AT THE SAME TIME! Geometrically impossible, and well worth setting your alarms for.
I put approximate moonset times in this GIF, but you should look up the specific schedule for your location here.

i want every single white man in a position of power to take a look at himself in the mirror and ask: am i competent, or am i just white and male?White women in powerful positions need to do the same: “…or am I just white and female, and therefore placed on a pedestal that gives me an unjust advantage even over MoC and certainly over WoC?”
