Also, a new 4K restoration of the 1933 Hedy Lamarr film "Ecstasy" will be screened the night before the fest officially opens.

There is a partial lunar eclipse tonight - a nice little commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11! Alas, besides only being partial, it won't be widely visible. But if you want to find out if you'll be able to see it, just check your location on timeanddate.com.

Johannes Kepler's book with his observations on the 1604 supernova was titled De Stella Nova in Pede Serpentarii [On the New Star in Ophiuchus's Foot]. Here's a copy of his drawing showing the location of the supernova. It's a bit difficult to see, but you'll have guessed where it is from the book's title! It's marked with an "N" on Ophiuchus's right foot.

Writer-director Damien Chazelle's latest feature film project is "Babylon", a period drama that is set at the moment when movies were transitioning to sound. Emma Stone and Brad Pitt are possible leads for the pic. I'm not a fan of Chazelle's "Whiplash", but am looking forward to "Babylon" if it doesn't mock the incredible artistry of silents (i.e. "Singin' in the Rain" and "Valentino").
