this day in history

April 14, 2014

today is a big day in history (as i learned when i was googling around the internet trying to keep my advisees entertained this morning).

  • passover begins today at sunset.
  • in 1865, president lincoln was shot by john wilkes booth.
  • in 1912, the titanic struck an iceberg and sank almost 3 hours later.
  • the first of four lunar eclipses over the next 1.5 years – the blood moon – will fill the sky tonight.  catch it out your window between 2 – 4 a.m.

who’s creeped out?  who’s staying up past bedtime?
