Full Moon Eclipse

A full, “Blood Moon” is on the rise. Keep an eye out, the werewolves roaming the streets. This Wednesday, marks the second full “blood moon” of the year. It can be seen all over the world except in Africa, Europe and parts of Asia. Here is a map from NASA showing approximate viewing visibility.

This blood moon is taking place right after the moon’s orbit is closest to the earth. Making the moon appear closer and larger in size, much like a super moon.

The last blood moon appeared on April 15th 2014. Next year’s blood moons will be on April 5th and September 28th. This Eclipse is part of a quartet of tetrad-moons, occurring in six-month intervals.

“So begins a lunar eclipse tetrad—a series of 4 consecutive total eclipses occurring at approximately six month intervals. The total eclipse of April 15, 2014, will be followed by another on Oct. 8, 2014, and another on April 4, 2015, and another on Sept. 28 2015. The most unique thing about the 2014-2015 tetrad is that all of them are visible for all or parts of the USA,” says longtime NASA eclipse expert Fred Espenak.

A ‘blood moon’ takes on a red or burnt color, created by the sun’s reflection on the moon’s surface.
