A Shiite Muslims during the holy day of #ashoura in Piraeus port, in Athens 20/19/2016 PHOTOGRAPHER/ JOHN LIAKOS/IN TIME NEWS  #shiite  #muslims #world over are observing the Ashoura, a holy day of mourning and the sect's most important religious ceremony commemorating the death in 680 AD of the Prophet Muhammad's grandson, Imam Hussein.  Hussein was killed along with 72 friends and family members in the battle of Karbala, in present-day Iraq. Shiites contend that Hussein's father Ali was unfairly passed over for leadership of the young Muslim caliphate after the death of the prophet.  Hussein's death at Karbala was a crucial blow to their rebellion and one of the turning points that spawned Islam's Sunni-Shiite divide.  #shiite  #muslims #ashoura #greece #islam #photojournalist #documedary #canongreece #hussein #ceremony #shiites

Full moon rises over the ancient temple of Poseidon in cape Sounio, about 65 kilometers south of Athens, Friday, July 27, 2018. The complete lunar eclipse Friday when the sun, Earth and moon line up perfectly to cast Earth's shadow on the moon, will be the longest this century. It's called a ''blood moon'' because it turns a deep red and will be visible at different times around the world. Additionally, Mars and the sun will be on exact opposite sides of the Earth and will shine its best.
