Lunar eclipse visible Tuesday
GREENBELT, Md., Aug. 27 (UPI) -- A total eclipse of the moon in the early hours of Tuesday will be visible from North and South America, Australia and western Asia.
During a total lunar eclipse, the moon crosses into the shadow of the earth, taking on a dramatically colorful appearance from bright orange to blood red to dark brown and very dark gray. The color depends on the amount of pollution in the air, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Goddard Space Center said in a release.
The moon will be completely in the Earth's shadow for 90 minutes, the deepest and longest in seven years, NASA said. The eclipse, which will begin after midnight Tuesday in the United States.
In the United States, only observers to the west of the Rockies will be treated to the entire event. The eclipse will be cut off early on the East Coast by sunrise. All phases will be visible from islands of the Pacific Ocean, New Zealand and eastern Australia.

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
