TV: Glee tribute to Cory Monteith - Sky 1, 8.00pm

The Quarterback is the tribute episode to actor Cory Monteith, who sadly died earlier in July.

The New Directions are united in grief after hearing of the sudden death of Finn.

Mr Schue encourages them to remember their friend the best way they can, through song, and former members of the group return to the school to help pay their respects.


Event: Penumbral Lunar Eclipse 

A penumbral lunar eclipse will take place on October 18th, 2013, the last of three lunar eclipses in 2013. The eclipse will be visible in the night’s sky to those in Europe, Africa, parts of the Americas, and parts of Asia.

Those in Europe, Africa, and the Near-East will get the best show, as the eclipse will peak during the dark late-night hours. Those in the Americas can still see the eclipse, but given that it will still be relatively light when the eclipse peaks, the view of the moon will not be as clear.

The next significant eclipse — a total lunar eclipse — will be occurring on April 15, 2014.
