    The total eclipse will last for 1 hour and 43 minutes, wherein the moon will be in flawless alignment with the sun and Earth. The situation when the moon turns into a deep red colour when it enters the depths of the Earth's shadow. Unfortunately, the moon will not have risen anywhere in the United States for viewing during this window. In space, most colours cannot travel large distances, and only red light can be clearly seen over millions of kilometres.

    There are microorganisms on Earth that are capable of surviving even in ice. It's tempting to think of this feature as a lake, given that the area with high reflectivity is several kilometers in diameter. Between March 2012 and December 2015, the researchers got 29 sets of radar readings from Mars's Planum Australe, the southern polar plain. A team of scientists has discovered a large body of subglacial liquid water on Mars.
