Can you find the turquoise in Wednesday’s lunar eclipse?

For 59 minutes early Wednesday morning, the moon will turn an eerie shade of copper red when it passes through the Earth’s shadow in a total lunar eclipse.
And if the skies are clear enough and you look at just the right moment, you might glimpse a band of turquoise stretching across the moon’s face. That turquoise is caused by the ozone in the upper atmosphere, which blocks out the red light and enhances the blue.
“You have to be a black-belt eclipse watcher to see it,” said Tony Phillips, an astronomer with spaceweather.com. “It’s kind of like a challenge. Like the ozone challenge. Can you see the turquoise?”
A partial lunar eclipse occurs when the moon skims the outskirts of the Earth’s shadow. During a total eclipse, also known as a blood moon, the moon plunges through and gets swallowed up by that shadow. This happens when the sun, moon and Earth are aligned. The Earth blocks the sunlight that is normally reflected off the moon, making the moon appear red, the color of an Earth’s sunset.
The shadow cast by Earth consists of two concentric cones, the penumbra, the pale outer shadow, and the umbra, the shadow’s inner core.

“This Wednesday, the moon will pass through the dark red core of Earth’s shadow — that’s the umbra, Phillips said. “The moon is not crossing dead center through the umbra. It can be a little out of alignment and we still get a lunar eclipse. That’s what’s happening here.”
Imagine, Phillips said, that you were standing on the surface of the moon during a total lunar eclipse. The Earth directly overhead would be blocking the sun, so you’d be seeing its night side. But you’d also see what looks like a ring of fire surrounding the planet.
“You’d be simultaneously seeing every sunset and sunrise happening around the Earth at the same time,” he said.
Wednesday’s eclipse will be the second of four consecutive lunar eclipses – that’s known as a tetrad — occurring in a two-year timespan that are visible in the United States. That’s unusual. From 1600 to 1900, for example, there were no tetrads at all, Phillips said.
The event will start at 6:25 a.m. ET and end at 7:24 a.m., and the best viewing conditions in our country will be in the West, along with the southern United States from Mississippi to the Carolinas and across Northern Florida, said Alex Sosnowski, senior meteorologist at accuweather.com. A storm system rolling through New England could deliver cloud cover that obscures the moon in the northeastern United States.
“As you head farther north in the northeastern states, you’ll have more cloud cover and rain, which could just totally foil the view,” Sosnowski said.


Phillips is one of many scientists who study the colors created as sunlight filters through the Earth’s upper atmosphere to understand more about the climate. Tomorrow morning, his team will fly a camera on board a helium balloon to photograph the eclipse from the stratosphere. Scientists have used this technique to photograph meteor showers from balloon payloads in the upper atmosphere, but it will be a first for a lunar eclipse.
“We want to know, what would the lunar eclipse look like if you could get above the atmosphere of our planet,” he said.

What Causes Brain Freeze And How To Get Rid Of It

Brain Freeze: Causes And Treatment
Brain freeze: a cold induced headache that affects your spg nerves
Quick ingestion of cold stuff can also be a trigger
Press your tongue to the roof of your mouth

Drink something warm
If you’re hit by brain freeze after having an iced slurry drink or a frozen dessert, it can leave you with an instant headache. You may be more prone to brain freeze if you have migraines or a family history of this kind of headache. Tackle the problem by drinking something warm or warming up your palate with your tongue. Eat or drink your cold food slower to avoid the brain freeze from happening at all!

Brain Freeze: A Cold-Induced Headache That Affects Your SPG Nerves


Brain freeze, ice-cream headache, or sphenopalatine ganglioneuralgia is a cold-induced or cold-stimulus headache. Sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) is a group of nerve cells connected to the trigeminal nerve, which is central to headaches. This cluster of nerves is found behind your nose and is responsible for transmitting information on sensations like pain. It is also involved in functions like nasal congestion and tearing up. When you have something cold, it touches the back of your throat and the roof of your mouth, causing tiny blood vessels in the region to suddenly constrict and then to dilate equally rapidly a little later.

Quick Ingestion Of Cold Stuff Can Also Be A Trigger
The speed at which you consume certain foods may also make a difference. For instance, if you drink/eat something like a crushed ice slurry very quickly, you are more likely to have a problem. Ice creams, on the other hand, produce mixed results. While some people say they experience brain freeze even when they eat it slowly, there are studies and surveys that have found that the cold stimulation of your palate while eating ice cream really fast is twice as likely to cause an ice cream headache.
Press Your Tongue To The Roof Of Your Mouth
Brain freeze is linked to the cooling down of your palate and roof and rear of your mouth. So by counteracting the cooling with warmth, you may be able to ease the pain. An easy and effective way to do this is to simply press your curled tongue to the underside of the roof of your mouth. Its warmth should help ease the problem a little or resolve it faster. As the warmth passes from your tongue to your palate, which in turn transmits it to the bundle of nerves behind it, you should feel better. Keep your tongue in place as long as you need to, to find relief.

Drink Something Warm
If the brain freeze is getting to you, quickly sip on something warm or eat something that’s warm. This should help warm up that palate and your mouth enough to hasten the exit of the headache and any pain.
