Sorry, I won't do this again for a while...

Good thing the parties aren't superstitious.

 Total Lunar Eclipse

 On Wednesday night, Oct. 27th, North Americans can see a total eclipse of 
the moon.

October 13, 2004: According to folklore, October's full moon is called the 
"Hunter's Moon" or sometimes the "Blood Moon." It gets its name from hunters 
who tracked and killed their prey by autumn moonlight, stockpiling food for 
the winter ahead. You can picture them: silent figures padding through the 
forest, the moon overhead, pale as a corpse, its cold light betraying the 
creatures of the wood.

The Blood Moon rises this year on Wednesday, Oct. 27th. At first it will 
seem pale and cold, as usual. And then ... blood red.

It's a lunar eclipse. Beginning at 9:14 p.m. EDT (6:14 p.m. PDT), the moon 
will glide through Earth's shadow for more than three hours.
