This image was taken 6 minutes before the entering the Moon
in the Earth shadow. The penumbral eclipse is visible left on the
Lunar disc as a grey region. The moon comes to distant trees in

ETHICAL PROBEMS OF ASTRONOMY
SCIENCE AND BUSINESS
Such a trifle as a starry night sky of largest observatories
turned out to be a small change coin
in commercial bargains for exclusive communal services in Russia,
and for a few elite flats in penthouses in Ukraine.
SCIENCE AND BUREAUCRATISM
First, the state imposes the power vertical line in scientific institutions, and as
a result, careerism and bureaucratism prospere, and then we face with philosophers
who cannot distinguish science from bureaucratism! (Till in Russian)
SCIENCE AND RELIGION
Clericalization of science and education.
Propaganda of medieval theological conceptions in Russian schools instead of
astronomy teaching (till in Russian).
