Lunar eclipse

Not exactly an herbal topic, but for those of us who enjoy gazing at the full moon, tonight may hold a special treat. On the East coast, moonrise (around 5:45pm, in the dusk hours) will bring an already-completely-eclipsed disk of the moon. It will be visible in the east, reddish-orange, and slowly return to its fully illuminated form over the course of the next hour. If the weather cooperates where you are, this eclipse promises to be quite spectacular: the twilight colors of sunset on one side of the sky, a fiery red moon on the other. Enjoy it! Next chance comes in August.
