malls movie the moon turned blood red last night we'll tell you why it happens and how it got that name. off it's good to have you with us today she came with plan b. britain's prime minister to resign may present in parliament with what's supposed to be an alternative plan for breakfast that one that she hopes will eventually win lawmakers support to resume a was forced to amend her original deal to take britain out of the e.u. after a majority of parliamentarians rejected it last week. mr speaker turning to brett if at first you don't succeed theresa may had an uphill battle on her second go at selling her brags of clamming she's faced criticism for refusing to take
a no deal bragg's it off the table but she said parliament held the key to solving the problem for state money the right way to rule out snooty ill is for this house to approve a deal with the european. cassy that is not this government is seeking to achieve the only other guaranteed way to avoid a no deal bret's it is to revoke article fifty which would mean staying in the new one of the hardest issues to untangle has been the so-called irish backstop a deal to maintain an open border between northern ireland which is part of the united kingdom and the republic of ireland which is part of the e.u. may is facing opposition to the backstop within her own government but dublin says it's essential to maintain peace in northern ireland a car bomb exploded in the northern irish city of london derry over the weekend a possible warning from militant groups in the region. may says that
she is looking for a solution with regard to the backstop despite the changes we have previously agreed there remain two core issues the fear that we could be trapped in it permanently and concerns over its potential impact on our union if northern ireland is treated differently from the rest of the u.k. so i will be talking to her this week to colleagues in a way that can come on to the greatest possible support in the house and i will then take the conclusions of those discussions back to the e.u. . just who in the e.u. is willing to listen to those conclusions is an open question the block is ruled out further concessions to the u.k. and so far plan c. is nowhere in sight. the reason may taking it back to the e.u. we're going to take this story now to brussels and talk about that part of the story i'm joined now by a correspondent dear motss good evening to you georg so theresa may she says she's
going to return to brussels which is no big surprise what are the leaders of the european union what are they going to be able to give her that they haven't already given her friend the labor leader jeremy corbin leader of the opposition in the british parliament today talked about groundhog day and i my it's insatiate is that a number of politicians and in the member states had exactly the same feeling when they were watching that speech where they haven't seen the reshape plan to resume a has announced and hence they haven't got much to offer when she is coming then a number of speakers spokespersons of the european commission today reiterated that yes we could work on the political declaration that is attached to the divorce agreement that is a paper that paves out the future relationship that the e.u. intends to have with the u.k. but nothing more nothing more substantial you could say and we've been hearing reports of poland floating an idea of putting
a five year limit on the back stop at the border between northern ireland in the republic of ireland could that her a way forward here. that's right so the polish foreign minister a meeting of foreign ministers today if you want broke ranks of the much proclaims unity that has been formed over the irish backstop but he was quickly caught back thinking aloud here i i think is what actually what he did because this position is not shared by the rest of the twenty seven the german foreign minister but also ireland's foreign minister clearly quickly made clear that it on an insurance policy there can be no time limit it renders the whole policy meaningless but look many here say even if there would be a time limit many wrecks to tears heartbreaks tears do not want a backstop not because of the fact stuff but because it sets the track for a soft practice it and that is actually what they do not want and you know we seem
to be making no progress brugge said the only thing that is moving forward is the clock do leaders in brussels and the e.u. do they still expect the u.k. to leave as scheduled on march twenty ninth i think it was interesting today went to resume a question to herself and said look this will be difficult to get an extension because in brussels they have been talking a while now over a potential extension but they've made again and again clear the u.k. will only get an extension if they put a clear plan on the table why they will need an extension of people's votes could be something they would get an extension for but that is something that theresa may ruled out so it doesn't look very likely to get them all right of course want to do your matches on the story for us tonight in brussels thank you very much. well the israeli military says its jets have struck iranian military targets in syria including it says munitions facilities and and intelligence sides the announcement

a full moon becomes completely blocked from sunlight by the earth the earth's shadow covers the moon obscuring it from view until only a dim outline can be seen at all. as for the name a super moon happens when the moon is closest to the earth making it appear larger than usual a wolf moon is an ancient name for any moon in january it comes from traditional tribal naming systems and the blood moon comes from the red color. the blood moon aspect of this eclipse is actually what we call all eclipses during to tallahassee the moon can take on a coppery red color and that's because some of the sunlight actually is filtered through the years at was fair and bens and is able to hit the moon and it turns it kind of coppery red and that's because the earth's atmosphere filters out the blue light it scatters it if you were on the moon you'd be seeing all the sunrises and sunsets happening on earth once more than fifteen hundred people turned up at this
