Tonight’s Full Moon is the first of four full eclipses known as the Blood Moon. The sunset should be spectacular (but wan’t due to cloud cover).
According to NASA, seeing four complete lunar eclipses in a row is very rare. The skies were tetrad-free from 1600 to 1900. But in the 21st century, there will be many and here in North America we will have a front row seat.
The eclipse begins at 2 a.m., but if forecasters are right, bad weather could make it impossible to experience it in CT.
According to a story in USA Today and Several other sources one televangelist swears that this first Blood Moon marks the beginning of catastrophic events.
(This is the same man who said Hurricane Katrina was the result of God’s wrath toward the city of New Orleans for planning a rally for gays and lesbians.)
