Penumbral Lunar Eclipse


Does this Moon look a little different to you? Although shown in spectacular detail, the full face of Earth's most familiar satellite appears slightly darker than usual, in particular on the upper left, because it is undergoing a penumbral lunar eclipse. The image was captured in Hong Kong, China, on September 16 when the Moon crossed through part of Earth's shadow -- but not the darkest where the Earth shades the entire Sun. A lunar eclipse can only occur during a full moon, and many know this particular full moon as the Harvest moon for its proximity to northern harvests. The next full moon will occur this coming Sunday. Some cultures refer to it as a Leaf Falling Moon, named for its proximity to northern autumn. The second full moon of the same month ("moonth") is sometimes called a Blue moon; meanwhile, this month features a rare second new moon, an event known to some as a Black moon.

Navio fantasma aparece em lago de Michigan, EUA

navio-fantasma

Uma ilusão óptica intrigante foi gravada por uma câmera nas margens do maior lago da América do Norte.

Gravado por Jason Asselin na costa de Marquette, Michigan, o vídeo mostra uma forma semitransparente e misteriosa no horizonte que parece ser um navio à vela.

“Longe da costa a partir de Marquette, Michigan, apareceu esse misterioso navio que parecia ser gigantesco!”, escreveu. “Quase como se um navio fantasma estivesse se revelando ao mundo…”

“Caso fosse um navio, como poderia ser tão alto nessas ondas agitadas?”

Alguns usuários da internet têm sugerido que o objeto poderia ser o farol da ilha de Granite, que tem várias estruturas altas, no entanto não está claro se o local teria alguma combinação.

Enviado para o YouTube há dois dias, a filmagem já foi vista por mais de 400.000 vezes.

"Lost Cities" Discovered In Libya

The Garamantes were an ancient civilization, in what is today Libya, on the African northern coast.  Unfortunately for their legacy, most of what we knew about them comes from their enemies, the Romans. Unsurprisingly, the Roman accounts described the Garamantes as “barbaric nomads and troublemakers on the edge of the Roman Empire.” This view of the Garamantes as a minor, annoying tribe is being overturned by recent digs. In 2011, a team of researchers led by archaeologist David Mattingly from the University of Leicester discovered more than 100 fortified farms, towns, and villages with castle-like structures in Libya that date from 1 CE to 500 CE. The Garamantes operated a trans-Saharan trade, and were even pioneers at building oases! Hardly the “barbaric nomads” the Romans unfairly called them.
