Total lunar eclipse tonight
There are always a couple lunar eclipses a year, but total eclipses are more rare (the next one won't be until 2010). This one becomes exact at 7:31 pm, PST. Hindus and Buddhists have long believed that prayers and mantras become much amplified during eclipses, so if you're inclined to send some prayers, chant or dance for peace during this time, heads up!
