The upcoming “Beaver Moon Eclipse” is classified as a penumbral lunar eclipse.

According to EarthSky.org, a penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth is positioned between the Sun and the Moon and, “the more diffuse outer shadow of the Earth – its penumbra – falls on the moon’s face.”.

Penumbral eclipses are more subtle and much more common than total solar and lunar eclipses.

Importantly, Mendeleev’s periodic table had been derived empirically based on the observed chemical similarities of certain elements.

It would not be until the early 20th century, after the structure of the atom had been established and following the development of quantum theory, that a theoretical understanding of its structure would emerge.

Elements were now ordered by atomic number (the number of positively charged particles called protons in the atomic nucleus), rather than by atomic mass, but still also by chemical similarities.

You’ll notice an extra zoom option when you load up the Camera app on the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max models, compared to the other iPhone 12 variations.

Instead of just a 0.5x and 1x option you’ll see a 2x option for the iPhone 12 Pro and a 2.5x option for the iPhone 12 Pro Max.

The benefits of the extra optical zoom are obvious: Even if you can’t physically get closer to whatever it is you’re shooting, whether it’s the stage at a music gig or a bird in your backyard, the iPhone camera can help.

Summarize

A review of weather patterns in inner East Asia over the past 260 years suggests the region is currently caught in a dangerous cycle of heatwaves and droughts that could forever reshape the area, and possibly turn the Mongolian Plateau into an arid wasteland.

New research published today in Science is painting an alarming picture of the current climate situation in inner East Asia.

Contemporaneous heatwaves and droughts in the region are happening more often now than they did 20 years ago, but as the new study points out, the current climate situation in the region has no precedent over the past 260 years.

Scientists Detect 'Superbolts' 1,000 Times Brighter Than Typical Lightning Strikes

Summarize

The researchers combed two years of data for lightning strikes that shone 100 times brighter than a typical bolt detected from space, and found about 2 million events intense enough to be called a superbolt – roughly one in every 300 lightning events. .

Just keep in mind, it's possible though that some superbolts appeared brighter than other strikes, if they were on the fringes of a storm cloud and the satellite detector had a cloud-free view.

When the researchers raised the bar to lightning events at least 1,000 times brighter than an ordinary lightning strike, they identified key hotspots of energetic superbolt activity.

Summarize

The trip, which would be his first outside of the Washington area since Election Day, was not listed on the public schedule released by the White House on Tuesday night, but is being handled internally as an unannounced movement.

The event is the latest attempt by Trump and his allies to undermine confidence in the 2020 election and attack the legitimacy of Joe Biden's election as president.

The Trump campaign and Pennsylvania Senate Republicans announced plans for the Gettysburg event, a meeting of the Pennsylvania Senate Majority Policy Committee, on Tuesday -- casting it as an effort to expose "irregularities" in the 2020 election.

State and local election officials have said there is no evidence of widespread voter fraud, and both a federal court and the Pennsylvania Supreme Court have dismissed lawsuits seeking to prevent the state from certifying the results of the election.
