Or a sign that Passover and Sukkot always occur during a full moon, which happens to be more-or-less the only time a lunar eclipse can occur...

They’ve tracked these tetrads ... and they are rare, and especially in context with the Jewish Festivals .

If you want to, you can easily track them in the past, all the way out into the future, using NASA’s information, and see how rare they are.

I would have to look up the precise definition for a tetrad, but it’s something like four consecutive eclipses, with no partials n between, and I think it’s supposed to be separated by six months apart. But, again, I would have to look up the precise definition.

Here’s that definition I was referring to earlier ...

Tetrad – four successive total lunar eclipses, with no partial lunar eclipses in between, each of which is separated from the other by six lunar months (six full moons).
