Super Blue Blood Moon

As I write this (5 a.m.-ish) the Super Blue Blood Moon is about to make its appearance.  This celestial trifecta is very rare so check it out if you can do so.

Not sure when or where you can see it too but click here for a link to NASA's live feed.
Sting is getting some negative feedback for his Grammy appearance Sunday night where he performed his 1987 Englishman in New York tune.  Younger viewers didn't think so highly of it nor Sting's subsequent performance with rapper Shaggy.
Englishman in New York appeared on Sting's album titled Nothing Like the Sun which is taken from a Shakespeare sonnet "My mistress eyes are nothing like the sun."  Sting quotes that line in another song on that album titled Sister Moon.  Branford Marsalis does the great sax intro and backing that sets the mood for the song.  If you don't get to see the Blood Moon, just watch and listen to this video instead.
