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 earths 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 Hagees 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 :)
Thanks for posting. I find it interesting.

Will Lunar Eclipses Cause Four Blood Moons in 2014 and 2015?
Four ‘blood-red’ total lunar eclipses will fall on Passover and Sukkot in 2014 and 2015, the same back-to-back occurrences at the time of 1492, 1948 and 1967

A Rare Tetrad of Total Lunar Eclipses
A Tax Day moon should look blood red.
What’s significant is that they coincide with Jewish feast days. Very unusual.
Mars will be in opposition to the Sun on 8APR2014.
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.
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.
Thanks Jack Hydrazine, extra to APoD.
“Does the concurrence with Jewish holidays count if you can’t see the eclipse from Israel?”
Do Jews live only in Israel? Does God only love Israel? Is God only confined to Israel?
