C. the moon slowly started to change color

D. the local inhabitants were reluctant to help

F. it was easy to spotlight a lunar eclipse by naked eyes

THE BLOOD MOON

A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth's shadow falls directly onto the moon. What happens as a result is that and turns coppery red instead - the sort of color usually only seen in the sky at dawn or sunset. An astronaut on the moon, looking towards Earth during a lunar eclipse, would see a black disc, surrounded by a bright red ring. It's the light from this red ring which is reflected back to the dark Earth from the Moon's surface. In ancient times, long before any of this was understood, and was thought to be an omen of disaster.

Total eclipses can only occur when there is a full moon, and then only if . Although easily obscured by cloud cover, blood moons are fairly common, and it is relatively easy to calculate where and when you might be able to see one. For example, in 1504, Christopher Columbus was stranded in Jamaica and in dire need of provisions, but . Columbus knew that a lunar eclipse would occur on 29 February, however. So, the day before, he warned local leaders that the moon would disappear unless they helped him. They remained skeptical. But when , they became so frightened that they started to bring food.

Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

As computer use becomes more common, the need for security is more important than ever. One of the greatest security threats in the online world is computer hacking. Computer hacking is the unauthorized access to a computer or network of computers. Hackers are people who illegally enter systems. They may alter or delete information, steal private information, or spread viruses that can damage or destroy files. But how exactly can a hacker get into a system to do these things?

Most hackers use information called protocols that are built into computer software. These protocols allow computers to interact with one another. Protocols are sort of like computer police officers. When a computer connects to another system, the protocols check to see if the access is valid. The protocols can also determine how much information can be shared between the two systems. Hackers can manipulate the protocols to get unlimited access to a computer system.

In fact, just the act of entering a computer network is considered hacking. This is commonly called passive hacking. Passive hackers get a rush from just being able to access a challenging system like a bank or military network. Another kind of hacker tries to do damage to a system. After hacking into systems, these hackers release viruses or alter, delete, or take information. Known as active hackers, they are, by far, the more dangerous of the two.

The easiest way to protect a system is with a good password. Long and unusual passwords are harder for hackers to guess. For even greater security, some online services use "password-plus" systems. In this case, users first put in a password and then put in a second code that changes after the user accesses the site. Users either have special cards or devices that show them the new code to use the next time. Even if a hacker steals the password they won't have the code. Or if the hacker somehow gets the code, they still don't know the password.
