BMW i8 , a hybrid sports car, nabbed the 2015 Green Car Award this morning at the New York International Auto Show . The 2015 model year BMW i8 has an all-electric range of 23 mi (37 km). The sleek hybrid spyder can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (0-100 km/h) in just 4.4 seconds and has a top speed of 159mph (256 km/h). The Green Car Award is a hotly anticipated honor bestowed annually by the World Car Awards. The awards ceremony was held this morning, following the announcement of the top three finalists last month at the Geneva Motor Show . The BMW i8 triumphed over the other two finalists, the Mercedes S500 plug-in hybrid and the Volkswagen Golf GTE. Candidates for the award are reviewed by a panel of five highly respected international “green” technology experts, who make their selections for the jurors to vote upon. + World Car Awards Image via BMW Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: 2015 green car award , 2015 New York Auto Show , bmw i8 , green car award , green car technology , greenest car , mercedes s500 , new electric cars , new green car technology , new hybrid cars , new york auto show , New York International Auto Show , volkswagen golf gte , winner of green car award , world car awards

Unusually brief ‘blood moon’ lunar eclipse happens this Saturday

Comments Off on Unusually brief ‘blood moon’ lunar eclipse happens this Saturday

In just a few days, unusually brief total lunar eclipse will delight skywatchers in North America, Australia and East Asia. Expected on April 4, the total eclipse will be its strongest at 6:34 am ET, with shadows beginning as early as 4:35 am. At this time, the Sun, Earth and Moon will be aligned so that the Moon passes directly through the Earth’s shadow, creating a red effect called a Blood moon . Unlike the total solar eclipse that happened on March 20 in parts of Europe, a total lunar eclipse can be viewed with the naked eye, without protective equipment. The blood moon will be visible for 12 minutes early morning on Saturday, and because of its brevity is expected to appear as a deeper red than other lunar eclipses.
