America’s Influence, Once so Dominant, Waning under Trump

Three years into Donald Trump’s presidency, America’s global influence is waning.

The evening of July 16 was one to enjoy a full moon for us in the USA while in primarily South America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia, a ‘Half Blood’ lunar eclipse, the last in 2019 occurred with blessing views of the sky for moon lovers.

Lunar eclipses happen when the full moon passes through Earth’s shadow as it orbits on the opposite of the planet from the sun. When the moon is completely in the Earth’s shadow, a total lunar eclipse occurs. The deepest part of the shadow is called the umbra. In today’s eclipse, the moon is passing only partly into the umbra, so this will be a partial lunar eclipse.

Rather than being a total lunar eclipse, typically called a “Blood Moon,” this was a partial lunar eclipse. Half a blood moon.

But for us in Florida it was only a beautiful full moon that, WTH, always rewards us after a hard day’s work.
