A 13-YEAR-OLD from Paisley has won the first qualifier in Estars UK-wide Fortnite championship, putting himself in the running for a £25,000 payday. Roman Rai demolished the competition in Glasgow to book his spot in the London final, which is taking place in March. Roman took out a huge 20 opponents on his way to one victory in the tournament at Celtic Park. Speaking on the win, Roman said; “I couldn’t believe it when I was told I won." "There were so many good players there including people much older than myself." If he wins, he says he'll use the cash to pay for a family holiday to the USA. "In a tournament this size, the average amount of eliminations is usually 10-15 so for Roman to get 20 is remarkable," the organisers said.

STARGAZERS will be treated to a rare total lunar eclipse in the New Year – the last for nearly two and a half years. On January 21, the full moon will become fully tinted with the red-orange colour of sunset. The spectacle will combine three fascinating events in what's known as a 'super blood moon' eclipse. And it'll be worth heading out for, as it's the last total lunar eclipse until May 2021. UK stargazers can catch the event on the morning of January 21, from around 2:37am. Over the course of the next three and a half hours, you'll see a bright orange hue creep across the face of the full moon, forming a "blood moon". For those unwilling to watch the full show, head out at around 5:15am to see the eclipse at its peak. A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth’s shadow completely covers the moon. The scattering of the Sun's light as it hits our atmosphere causes the reddish glow. According to Nasa: “The exact colour that the moon appears … [Read more...] about Rare supermoon lunar eclipse will turn the moon ORANGE in the new year – here’s how to spot it

THE EXTRAVAGANT Blood Moon is set to light our skies on July 27. Some insist the phenomena is more than a stunning astronomical sight, classing it as a "signal". Read on for more... What is a blood moon? The moon appears blood red during a total lunar eclipse. The next blood moon marks the second blood moon and lunar eclipse of the year. It will be the 21st century's longest lunar eclipse so far, lasting almost two hours. Brit stargazers have been advised to catch a glimpse of the moon at around 9:10pm on both July 27 and 28. Why does the moon turn red? A blood moon is caused by an effect known as Rayleigh scattering. This is possible because while the moon is in total shadow, some light from the sun passes through Earth's atmosphere and is bent toward the moon. The only light that can be seen is refracted through the earth's shadow, and this light looks red just like with the sunset.
