The approach of winter is heralded as the constellation of Orion, the warrior, ap- pt-ars above the eastern horizon.

Perhaps the feature of the month's celestial program is a total eclipse of the rroon that occurs during the night of Nov. IV, after midnight In the eastern piirt of the country.

At I the moon, moving toward the Icfl, starts to enter the earth's dark shadow. This process takes about an hour, and during this time the curved edge of the earth's shadow is! seen creeping across the face of | ihe moon. At II the total eclipse begins and lasts until III, when the nKxin starts to emerge from the- shadow, with the sunlight first shining on its northeastern edge. Once more the edge of !he shadow moves across the moon, and at IV it is over. Thp times for these various stages are given in the table below. Even while the moon is totally eclipsed, it does not disap- entirely from view, but has caiise the atmosphere of t he earth acts as a prism and bends some of the rays of sunlight into the si ijciow, where they fall on the moon. As the light passes through the atmosphere, some of its blue rays are absorbed and what gets through is pre dominantly red. It is the same effect that makes the setting sun look red, but at eclipse time the rays have twice as long an atmospheric path as those which reach us from the setting sun. Although an eclipse of the moon does not have the great scientific value of one of the sun. which scientist often Iravol halfway around the earth to see. the lunar eclipse is an in teresting spectacle, and one which will well repay the late hours required to view it.
