Lunar Tetrad

Lunar Tetrad.. four astral events of lunar eclipse:
On April 15, 2014, there was a total lunar eclipse.
On October 8, 2014, there was a total lunar eclipse.
On April 4, 2015, there was a total lunar eclipse.
On September 27, 2015, a fourth total lunar eclipse. This one is called a "Super Blood Moon" eclipse.
The idea of a "blood moon" serving as an omen of the coming of the end of times comes from the Book of Joel, where it is written "The sun will turn into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day".

The moon will be at its perigee this time, and appear larger than normal.
The reason it appears red is due to reflected light filtering through our atmosphere, containing iron oxides.
I doubt our old "third rock" is going to break an axle!!
F@H.. to solve mankind's maladies.. in our lifetimes!
