Hey there, on this Friday. I am Virginia Cha at the CNN center in Atlanta with a look at what 's happening NOW IN THE NEWS.

As you can see, a huge crowd in Teheran yesterday. They support opposition1 leader Mir Hossein Mousavi. He wants a new election. The rally was described as a peaceful protest. Witnesses say people approached police silently and smiled, and the officers smiled back. Mousavi spoke2 to the cheering crowd. This video is from Youtube by the way. International journalists were not allowed to cover this, but Twitter messages say, he talked about Iran's economic problems as well as corruption3.

Passengers on board Continental4 Airlines flight said they had no idea their pilot had died until they landed. 60-year old Craig Lenell died of an apparent heart attack halfway5 between Belgium and New Jersey6. Two copilots and a relief pilot were on board. And that apparently7 is normal on long flights. The plane did land safely. That's when passengers saw ambulances and fire trucks on the runway.

They've paged for a doctor?

Yes, they did. There were a lot of doctors on the plane.


Yes, they were very lucky instead.

And what point were you told?

Well, we may page for the medical emergency.

They called the doctor in the middle of the flight. That was it. So we did not know it with the pilot. We sat in first class. We did see the doctor moved to the front. That's all we saw.

A Minnesota woman has been fined $1.9 million for illegally sharing 24 songs she downloaded. The recording8 company's accused some other of illegally sharing more than 1,700 songs from her computer, but only tried to prove 24 infringements9. Her attorney says the computer was linked to a file sharing site, but there is no proof his client was the one who gave away those songs.

NASA takes the first step to returning to the moon by 2020. Yesterday, it launched an unmanned rocket with two satellites. The satellites will spend the next year cruising the lunar surface, will help to determine where astronauts could land and set up camp.

Those are the headlines for you this hour. Stay with CNN for more on those stories and all your other news of the day.
