Passover and the Lunar Eclipse, AKA the Blood Moon...

Monday evening at Sunset is the beginning of Passover, the First of the yearly High Holy Feasts of the Lord in Judaism, & the oldest continuous celebration of Freedom on Earth.

Later, in the wee hours of the morning, is one of the rarest occurrences in Astronomy. Not just a full Lunar eclipse, but the first of "four" full Lunar eclipses this year & next, AKA Tetrad for four, and  Blood Moons because of how the Sun's light passes through the Earth's atmosphere, tinting the Moon's surface red.

That's all pretty cool, and I still remember my Father waking me to see a full eclipse sixty some odd years later, but that's not particularly special... however..., the fact that all four full eclipses occur, precisely on the High Holy Feasts of the Lord "IS" special! It hasn't happened very many times throughout all of history, & has always coincided with significant events in the history of Israel. If you would like to know more on that subject, go to:

Don't know what you'll make of it, but I hope you'll enjoy.

Want to watch the Lunar Eclipse Tuesday am? Best viewing time will start approximately 0100 CDT, & continue to around 0530 CDT. The Moon is in Virgo, & Spica is the bright star in conjunction with the Moon. That's also pretty cool. Doesn't happen real often either. There's also Spiritual significance in Spica. Leave a comment if you want to know more.

Best wishes,
