Google’s homepage may have cued you into this, but in case you are out of the loop…Calling all people of earth! A lunar eclipse is upon us, aka the earth’s shadow completely blocking the sun.

The moment of lunar eclipse will begin at 1:24 p.m. EDT and end around 7 p.m. EDT, peaking at 4:12 p.m. EDT. This eclipse is said to last an hour and 40 minutes, which makes it a long one since the last time one made it to that time was in July 2000, when it occurred for 7 minutes longer.

If you’re planning to view the eclipse and live in North America, you’re out of luck. As the full eclipse will only be visible from the eastern half of Africa, eastern Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, the Middle East, Central Asia and western Australia. Europe will miss out on the beginning of it because it’s below the horizon, while Eastern Asia, eastern Australia and New Zealand will miss out on the end of it.

But the good news is, for those of us in North America, that the entire eclipse will be available to view online! The Sky Watchers Association Of North Bengal is inviting everyone to view a live feed of the event on their page, which you can check out here.

Keep in mind that for the U.S., the next chance to see a total lunar eclipse won’t roll around until April 15, 2014!

Compared to the modern world, it was much harder to be vegan in Ma‘arrī’s time and place due to the religious and social pressures.
