‘Blood Moon’ Lunar Eclipse Visible April 14-15, Beginning Rare Series Of Total Eclipses
CBS ^ | 4APR2014 | Brandon Mercer

Posted on 04/08/2014 12:40:28 PM PDT by Jack Hydrazine

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Just in time for tax day, which may feel like trying to squeeze blood from a rock, the moon will appear blood-red in a total lunar eclipse on the night of April 14th and overnight into April 15h.

The total eclipse will be at its best over the Bay Area at 12:46 a.m. on April 15th, but the beginnings of the eclipse will be visible starting around 9:55 p.m. The moon will begin turning red at 12:08 a.m.

The eclipse is a rare celestial phenomenon easily observed with the naked eye, and as such it can be quite moving. Biblical prophecies talk of the sky turning dark (usually a solar eclipse) or the moon turning to blood (usually a lunar eclipse). The red color is created when sunlight is filtered around the earth’s atmosphere, and hits the moon. The same phenomenon is observed every sunrise and sunset as the sky lights up with oranges and reds.

In the next few years, a series of eclipses every two years may be interpreted by some Christians as fulfillment of an End-Times prophecy, a phenomenon called a lunar “tetrad” where there are four successive total lunar eclipses, with no partial eclipse in between. The next are October 8th, and April 8th and September 28th of next year. Tetrads are not unusual. There will have been eight of them in this century, but author John Hagee’s finds deeper meaning.

In his book listing for “Four Blood Moons” on Amazon.com, he writes “It is rare that scripture, science, and history align with each other, yet the last three series of Four Blood Moons have done exactly that. “

His top 100 bestseller references the Biblical book of Joel, 2:31, “The sun will be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.”

I hope the moon isn’t out to obscure the view :)

What’s significant is that they coincide with Jewish feast days. Very unusual.

Closest approach will be on 14/15APR2014 with the full Moon and Mars in the constellation Virgo if you look east after dark.

This tetrad is the only one that happens during the 21st century. And when they happen on the Jewish holidays major events involving Israel and Jews occurs.

I expect a war in the mid-east very soon. What will be the trigger? Have no idea.

Does the concurrence with Jewish holidays count if you can't see the eclipse from Israel? The first three of the four can't be seen from there and the last on 9/28/2015 occurs right around moonset/sunrise there.

They don’t show up over Israel but if you take the shadows from all four it covers the entire Earth.

Perhaps it will come from the skies. In the form of a large aircraft.

They sure can read about it in Israel. And live cams will make them visible everywhere there’s coverage.

Do Jews live only in Israel? Does God only love Israel? Is God only confined to Israel?

There were no blood moons in 1948.

This is where the experts "fudge" a little bit.

The blood moons were 1949-1950.

The reason 1948 is referenced so often is Israel's declared statehood in May 1948. But this was 11 months before the April blood moon of 1949.

(So God is off by a year in His calculations?)

It says at that link about lunar tetrads...

"The lunar eclipses of 2014 are the first of four consecutive total lunar eclipses - a series known as a tetrad. During the 5000-year period from -1999 to +3000, there are 4378 penumbral eclipses (36.3%), 4207 partial lunar eclipses (34.9%) and 3479 total lunar eclipses (28.8%). Approximately 16.3% (568) of all total eclipses belong to one of the 142 tetrads occurring over this period (Espenak and Meeus, 2009)." Tetrads are rare indeed!

All we need to do in that instance is to decide whether something covered with a live cam is part of biblical prophecy.

I can't think of any candidates for a network to carry that broadcast. But they will be available for a long time. Maybe it will come to pass that TV can tear itself away from NFL games for a while.

Islam will try their biggest push of eradication of Israel near or on these dates of course.
If my kids were still in school I would keep them home, be vigilant for anything literally right out of the blue anywhere anytime, Islam and Muslims will become a hive mentality.

Okay, so pardon me, that’s the same question I was asking. Well, you would think it would be seen from the Holy Land at that.

It doesn’t have to be seen from Israel. It depends more on if the blood Moons occur on the Jewish holidays.
