While you watch the beginning of tonight’s lunar eclipse, keep in mind Irish boy band Westlife’s cover of the Bonnie Tyler classic “Total Eclipse of the Heart.” This was the only way I could really tie the celestial event to a gay tune. By that I mean Mark Feehily, right. The band never made it big in America, but they made headlines when Feehily came out back in 2005 to The Sun. He and his partner Kevin McDaid, who was in the Brit band V, announced their engagement in January of this year.
Back to tonight, it’s reported that the totality of tonight’s eclipse will start happening around 1:30 a.m. However, around 12:30 a.m., you will be able to see the beginning of the eclipse. As much as I’d like to put that astronomy class to good use, I think I’ll wait for the video.
