  3. Walter Freeman:

    Viewers will see a normal full moon at first starting at around 10:35 p.m. Eastern time, at that time, the Earth's shadow will begin to pass in front of the moon, blocking almost all of the sun's light from reaching it. Observers will see the moon appear to be progressively' swallowed up' starting from the lower left. This process will end at 11:40 p.m., when the Earth's shadow covers the whole of the moon's surface ; this is the beginning of' totality.' This will last until around 12:40 a.m., when the motion of the Earth's shadow will carry it past the moon, and the moon will gradually again be lit by the sun. At 1:45 a.m., the moon will be fully visible again.

  5. Emeasoba George:

    I'm writing and publishing not to make (both) ends meet. Oh! yes, I'm just writing and publishing in order to enrich or touch enormous lives globally and to change people's thoughts, lifestyles and beliefs positively. Guess what! I've succeeded in doing just that. Besides, I've equally succeeded in making a global impact all over the internet and even beyond it via my God-given thought-provoking quotes, insights, ideas, motivations and inspirations. As a matter of fact, I'm presently a source of inspiration and motivation to millions of people (globally). And mark my word(s), I will ever remain a source of inspiration and motivation to the world and even to the posterity ahead (all future generations ahead) by virtue of my upcoming books. Because, I'm full of strokes of a genius (I'm saturated with original, unique, innovative and impactful ideas, insights, motivations and inspirations). And so, I intend to write and publish many worth-reading books on or before my demise. Anyway, thank Goodness, God (almighty) and Heavens for everything is gradually turning around for my own good or betterment. ~Emeasoba George
