Stargazers Enjoy Supermoon & Total Lunar Eclipse
A rare two-for-one treat was in store for GTA Stargazers Sunday night with the rare occurrence of a total lunar eclipse and a supermoon, except the clouds made for less-than-perfect picture-taking opportunities. We won’t see another total eclipse until 2018, and we won’t see another total eclipse of a supermoon until 2033. A supermoon is when a new moon makes its closest approach to the Earth, making it appear larger and brighter than normal. And when the moon is then eclipsed by the Earth’s it can turn the moon into a reddish colour, known as a Blood Moon.
Voters Favour Key Social Issues But Not Long Gun Registry
Marijuana, prostitution and fire arms – sounds like a Charlie Sheen party, but all three are actually the focus of the latest Forum poll out this morning, highlighting some of the key social issues for voters. The poll found more than half of Canadian voters want to see pot legalized with 54% support and 49% in favour of legalizing prostitution. However, the long gun registry had just 4-in-10 voters wanting it back in operation, with 44% against the idea.
Playoff-Bound Jays Sweep Rays
It was an exciting way to close out the final home game of the regular season, as a walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth by Josh Donaldson lifted the Jays to a 5-4 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. The win gave Toronto a three-game sweep of Tampa Bay, helping them keep pace with Kansas City for the best record in the American League. The Jays are already set to make their first playoff appearance since 1993. The team’s performance so far this season has already set the city into a fan frenzy, and Josh Donaldson’s name was trending on Twitter not long after the win.
