Blood Moon Eclipse Probably Not A Bad Omen, According To Boring Astrophysicist

Blood Moon 2017 prophecy

This eclipse will be the longest in this century and is expected to last for more than 100 minutes.

The combination of a supermoon and total lunar eclipse creating a blood moon last occurred in 1982 and will not happen again until 2033.

Doomsday preachers have been reportedly suggesting that July's blood moon heralds the end of the world, as biblical passages talk about the moon turning the colour of blood prior to the apocalypse - and we have had several such events recently. It will be long because there is both a full moon and a moon apogee happening simultaneously.

A blood moon lunar eclipse will provide night-time spectacle to people around the world next month.

According to Nasa, the Moon will be in full eclipse - or totality - for 103 minutes.

House GOP immigration compromise teeters ahead of votes
Under the bill, children under age 18 would be kept with their families in residential centers during legal proceedings. Democrats "are conflicted", he said, because they "like the narrative" of blaming Trump for separating families.

If you're reading this you've probably seen a lunar eclipse before, but as amateur and professional astronomers know, it's not a "seen one, seen 'em all" situation. The moonlight travels through more of Earth's atmosphere typically giving the moon a yellow/orange color. "At the end of the night you have a bright red-coloured Mars close to a red-coloured Moon in the sky", he said.

The entire event, from start to finish, will last around four hours.

The moon will officially rise at 8:48 p.m.in Western Washington, though you'll need to allow 5-10 minutes for the moon to be visible above the Cascades. The initial phase of the eclipse will be visible in New Zealand before its final stage is seen in parts of South America. Also, a "blood moon" occurs during a lunar eclipse, when the Earth comes between the Moon and the Sun, and casts its shadow over it. "The moon is simply passing into the Earth's shadow". "That [the middle] gets a longer-duration eclipse", he said.

The fears hinge around a line in the Book of Joel 2:30-31 that says: 'And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke'.

Just a few days after the lunar eclipse, Mars will pass by Earth at its closest point to since 2003.
