Total Eclipse
For those living in the Phoenix area, the total eclipse will begin around 3:25 a.m., peak at 3:55, and end by 4:25. Although this lunar eclipse is being referred to by many as a "blood moon" thanks to a Christian sect that subscribes to the prophecy of a lunar tetrad signaling an end of days, many simply refer to it as the Hunter's Moon.

Gay Marriage
In a landmark decision, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals today ruled that Nevada and Idaho's bans on marriage for same-sex couples are unconstitutional. Arizona is within the jurisdiction of the Ninth Circuit and the ruling will likely lead an Arizona federal court to swiftly overturning the marriage ban here. Why Marriage Matters Arizona is a grassroots public education campaign to build support for the freedom to marry in Arizona. It was founded in 2013 by Equality Arizona, the ACLU Foundation of Arizona, Freedom to Marry and the Human Rights Campaign Foundation with the support and leadership of countless local businesses, clergy and community organizations.
