KOMPSK OF THU MOON TO-NIGHT
A total ecllpso of tho moon will occur
to-night. Tho moon enters the shadow
oT th earth at oloven o'clock and forty
six minute', and w ill bo totally eclipsed
at ono o'clock ami four minutes (Sunday
morning) middle or cclipio one i. 'clock
and twenty.ono minutes. Total celipiu
ends at ono o'clock and thirty-eight rain
utui, nnd tun moon leaves the shadow at
two o'clock and fifty-six mlniituv As tho
moon shines by borrowed light from tho
sun, (it being an opaque body llko the
otrth) somo may question why It is vtslblo
while hid from tno sun behind tho earth,
hi it ii while eclipsed. During this Inter
val it will appear still visible, shining
with a dull, red light. Since it is hiddon
from the sun this light cannot be direct,
nor cin It be redacted by tbo earth, tor
the dark side is turned to tho moan. This
light is accounted for by the refraction or
the earth's atmosphere, by which tho tun's
rays aro bent and conveyed In sufficient
quantity to aflord the feeblo light mon
tioned. Or course, at tho mtddlo or the
eclipse, (1 hour, 21 mlnuy) the moon
will bo full, and at this Instant,
a straight line from tho centro o( the sun
would piu through lh rnntrn of thnnarth
and the moon or U' tbreo bodies are In
exact rango. All theso predictions glvon
for this nlcht, are derivnd from aitrooo
roers, and aro compiled by Til u Dulls:
tin for tho information of Its readers, who
can, wltb the nukod eyo and the aid or a
good watch, (set to Cairo time) observe
Astronomors otten excito our astonish
ment by statements of magnitudes and
dlslancos. For Instance, that our sun is
ono million four hundred thousand times
larger than our earth, and that oven the
nearest of tho Qzed stars is so vastly (lis
tant that wo cannot form an adsquato con
ception by stating it in miles; and soek lo
measure It by tho flight of light (which
travels from tho tun to the earth in oigbt
minutos and sevon seconds) and it Is found
that this agont requires mora than three
and ono-balf years to reach us irom oven
tbo nearest of thoso stars.
Wo might bo Inclined to suspect the
purposeof suoh statements to be only to ox
cite our wondor and admiration, for it ro
quires profound mathematical knowledgo
and reflnod Instruments to investigate tbo
truths of such amazing results, and yet
tho two examples glvon aro but modorato
results or tho investigations of tbo science
or astronomy. But as wo before said,
eclipses can bo vlewod by even tho un
laarnod, and the accuracy of tbo astrono
mer tested by tho naked oyo and
common clock. As tboir predictions have
boon always confirmed, even the ignorant
