Blood Moon
Apr. 16, 2014
http://www.nationalreview.com/slideshows/375868
http://natl.re/1l03M9V
Skywatchers around the world took in an amazing celestial display late Monday evening as a total lunar eclipse turned our nearest neighbor into the “blood moon” of folklore. Here’s a look at various views of the event. Pictured, the full blood moon in Magdalena, N.M.
In a lunar eclipse, the moon passes into the shadow of the Earth, gradually darkening and then returning to normal. In a total eclipse, the light from the moon takes on a copper hue due to shimmers of sunlight and sunsets seeping through the Earth’s atmosphere.
Monday’s total lunar eclipse and blood moon is the first of four such events — known as a “lunar tetrad” — occurring over the next 18 months. The next event is on October 8, followed in 2015 on April 4 and September 27. After that, you’ll have to wait until 2032. Pictured, the view in Milwuakee, Wisc.
Cloud cover spoiled the view in some cities, but many millions in North and South America and elsewhere around the world had an unobstructed view. Pictured, Shanghai residents watch the eclipse from a suburban rooftop.
Eager crowds await the eclipse a the Chabot Space and Science Center in Oakland, Calif.
Residents of Los Angeles gathered at the Griffith Observatory in the hills below the Hollywood sign to watch the cosmic show.

Some historians note a passage in the Bible’s Book of Acts that seems to foretell the blood moon. The passage reads: “And I will show wonders in Heaven above and signs in the Earth beneath, the sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.”

Images from the Maidan
Apr. 16, 2014
http://www.nationalreview.com/slideshows/375864
http://natl.re/1iXBAyT
National Review's Jillian Kay Melchior is traveling in Ukraine, where she visited Independence Square in Kiev, also known as the Maidan, the site of the citizen revolt that led to the ouster of president Viktor Yanukovych. Here's a look at the images she's posted on her Instragram account jilliankaym, with her captions. Pictured, Melchior and her father at the Maidan.
"Barricades still stand under the bridge, and photos hang commemorating the "Heavenly 100" killed at #maidan"
"The building in the background was once a headquarters for press and medical volunteers. It was legally rented by the opposition. Riot police lit it on fire, and people struggled to escape."
"I interviewed a journalist named Kristina today. She had interviewed the man in the graffiti, Sergiy, who was shot to death protesting the Yanukovych regime just days after she spoke to him."
"This 19-year-old girl made Molotov cocktails during Maidan for protestors to use against riot police trying to shoot or beat them. She tells me they were for self-defense, and when the protests ended, she was relieved to see many unused."
"Piles of bricks where Maidaners literally disassembled the streets for bricks to throw at Yanukovych's riot police"
The translation isn't exact, but this basically say, "Farwell, Putin, **** off."
"Putin graffiti at Maidan."
At the bottom, it says, roughly, 'The man who will choose to be free alone is the man who is truly free.'"
"A memorial on the spot in Maidan where dozens were shot and perished on Feb. 20."
"A woman shows a little boy a burnt car not far from Independence Square."
"The spot in Kiev where Maidaners toppled the city's last Lenin statue."
"A bullet display at Maidan-- the so-called "non-violent" tools Yanukovych's riot police used, says the sign."
"Posters near Maidan."
"Graffiti near the spot where the first Maidan activists were killed in January."
"Fancy chocolates from a Uranian confectioner based in Lviv."
Russian Su-24
Apr. 15, 2014

http://natl.re/1m5p6YD
A Russian bomber made repeated “provocative” passes near a U.S. Navy destroyer in the Black Sea over the weekend, a sign of increased Cold War-style tensions surrounding the security situation in Ukraine. Here’s a look at the Russian Su-24, codenamed “Fencer.”
The USS Donald Cook arrived in the Black Sea last week for maneuvers as a show of U.S. support for NATO member states in the region. The encounter with the Russian jet occurred about 48 hours after its arrival. (Photo: Chief Mass Communication Specialist Scott B. Boyle)
According to Navy Times, the Su-24 made twelve passes near the Donald Cook in international waters. The aircraft did not respond to hails from the ship during the approximately 90-minute encounter. Some reports had the aircraft flying as low as 500 feet and as close as 1,000 yards.
If the encounter was a show of force, it was not one that represented a serious threat to the Donald Cook, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer bristling with offensive and defensive systems. (Photo: Mass Communication Specialist Seaman Edward Guttierrez)
A Reuters report indicated the Su-24 aircraft involved was not armed with any bombs, and the Donald Cook did not to go battle stations during the encounter. It is possible that the aircraft was testing the electronic defense systems on the Donald Cook.
Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steve Warren issued a strongly-worded statement: “This provocative and unprofessional Russian action is inconsistent with their national protocols and previous agreements on the professional interaction between our militaries. I have difficulty believing that two Russian pilots on their own would choose to take such an action.” (Photo: Navy Chief Journalist Mate Alan J. Baribeau)
THE “FENCER”: The Sukhoi Su-24 — known by its NATO designation “Fencer” — is an all-weather, twin-engine, two-man supersonic fighter-bomber first deployed in 1974. It has seen service throughout former Warsw Pact air forces and other Russian client states.
In design and mission profile, the Su-24 bears a strong resemblance to the U.S. Air Force F-111 Aardvark (pictured). Both aircraft feature a variable geometry “swing wing” that can be adjusted for low-speed (swept outward) and high-speed (swept back) flight.
Like the F-111, the Su-24 can fly low and below radar for its primary mission of penetrating hostile territory and destroying ground targets with missiles and bombs.
A newer model, the Su-24M (pictured), entered service in 1983, and features upgrades including an in-flight refueling system. (It is not known which variant of the Su-24 was involved in the incident with the Donald Cook.)
According to figures from AirForceTechnology.com, the Su-24M has a flight ceiling of approximately 36,000 feet and a range of more than 1,800 nautical miles
Later models of the Su-24 are capable of mid-air refueling, greatly extending range.
Some 473 Su-24s are currently flying in air forces around the world, according to figures from FlightGlobal Insight. The Russian Air Force and Navy together operate just over 300 Fencers.
Syria reportedly has 20 Fencer aircraft in its arsenal. Pictured, a Syrian Air Force Su-24 drops a bomb load.
Several Su-24s formerly attached to the Belarus Air Force (pictured) have also turned up in Sudan, and another 22 are operated by Algeria.
Iran also retains 27 Su-24s in its arsenal.

Bundy Ranch Standoff
Apr. 14, 2014
http://www.nationalreview.com/slideshows/375740
http://natl.re/1jFqi4e
A standoff between recalcitrant Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management over cattle grazing on public land has subsided for the moment, but emotions remain high. Here’s a look at some images from the scene in Nevada, and commentary on social media.
Agents acting on behalf of the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) earlier this month executed a court order and began seizing Bundy's livestock, accusing him of illegally grazing on federally controlled land, failing to pay range fees, and threatening the welfare of the endangered desert tortoise.
Still embroiled in a long legal dispute with the federal government, Bundy (pictured addressing supporters) saw the issue as one of states’ rights over management of the area and a misuse of the federal Endangered Species Act.
Bundy also argues that his family has raised cattle on the land — both his own private land and on open-range land within the Lake Mead area near Las Vegas — since the late 1800s. Pictured, some of Bundy’s cattle being rounded up by federal agents.
The standoff is reminiscent of the previous legal disputes that have occured in Western states over management of public land, much of which is still controlled by the federal government.
Protesters arrived from across the country to stand with Bundy and protest the heavy-handed government actions. Pictured, protesters form a line near an encampment of government agents.
Armed militiamen were among the supporters who arrived in Nevada to stand with Bundy against government agents and area police. They vowed to use force only if attacked.
Protesters confront federal agents at a BLM base camp.
Bundy walks past a “First Amendment Area” set up by federal agents for supporters to protest. The barriers were eventually removed.
Signs speak to the larger issues that protesters saw at stake in the dispute.
Over the weekend, the BLM announced it would cease the seizure of cattle in the interest of avoiding further tensions and possible violence. Supports of Bundy quickly celebrated the government retreat.
But the fight goes on...
