This isn’t a piece of Harry Potter news per se, but just as we heard from the mysterious R.A.B (now known as Regulus Black) in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, so too will Regulus be bright tonight during the Lunar eclipse. Readers will recall of course that the Black family has a tradition of naming children after their heavenly counterparts. As CNN notes Jack Horkheimer, host of the PBS show “Star Gazer, is calling the event tonight “the moon, the lord of the rings and heart of the lion eclipse.” As the moonlight dims – it won’t go totally dark – Saturn and Regulus will pop out and sandwich the moon. Regulus is the brightest star in the constellation Leo. You can learn more about the mysterious red moon rising and the eclipse tonight here via Astronomy.com.

Oh and a word of caution for mindless Muggles and vigilant wizards alike: Beware of Werewolves! ;)
