Sky gazers caught a glimpse of the "blood moon" crossing the Earth's shadow Tuesday in all its splendor. The moon took on a reddish hue as it appeared in different phases between 2 and 4:30 a.m. ET. In North and South America, where the blood moon was most prominent, observers pointed at the spectacle with binoculars, telescopes and cellphones. Depending on time zones, it started late Monday night or in the wee hours of Tuesday morning. Showers and clouds rendered it a bust in some cities, including Atlanta. In Los Angeles, the chance to view the total lunar eclipse lured thousands to the Griffith Observatory. Families spread out blankets on the grass to take in views from dozens of telescopes set up like a stand of small trees.
“Blood will have blood.” This quote brings forth intense carnal imagery as well as expressing one of the strongest messages in Macbeth. The quote expresses the killing only leads to more killing and before you know it the body count will be monumental.
The amazing thing about this blood moon tetrad is that this is only the eighth blood moon tetrad to fall on Jewish Holy days since the time of Christ. This marks the third blood moon of the current tetrad. I was a bit disappointed since I was unable to actually sit on my driveway and watch it because of the cloud cover in my town (hopefully we'll get some rain out of those clouds). None the less I was able to see it televised live on the NASA channel.
The eight blood moon tetrads have each marked historic significance to the tiny nation of Israel.
Since the first blood moon of this current tetrad we've seen the rise and spread of ISIS, the ebola outbreak in Africa, numerous terrorist attacks including massacres in Tunisia, Kenya, and the fall of Yemen.
We have also witnessed the personal animosity that the POTUS has shown to Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu when he came to America with a warning about negotiations with Israel's sworn enemy, Iran. I find it strange that President Obama freely talks with Muslim leaders, even inviting members of the Muslim Brotherhood to the White House for Ramadan celebrations, but refuses to speak to Mr. Netanyahu, the leader of America's greatest ally. While these negotiations were taking place in Switzerland, the Iranian mullahs were crying out, "Death to America."
