"BLOOD MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE"

Several cultures have myths related to lunar eclipses or allude to the lunar eclipse as being a good or bad omen and "Blood Moon"  It may sound like the apocalypse is nigh,  due to its reddish color, This amazing phenomenon are Total Lunar Eclipse & Blood Moon; everything at once...  The association of the Moon with both oceanic and crustal tides has led to claims that the bloodmoon phenomenon may be associated with increased risk of events like earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and doomsday, but there is no such link.  Certain lunar eclipses have been referred to as "blood moons" in popular articles but this is not a scientifically-recognized term. The  reddish color a totally eclipsed Moon takes on to observers on Earth. As sunlight penetrates the atmosphere of Earth, the gaseous layer filters and refracts the rays in such a way that the green to violet wavelengths on the visible spectrum scatter more strongly than the red, thus giving the Moon a reddish cast.

 Blood moon


Certain lunar eclipses have been referred to as "blood moons" in popular articles but this is not a scientifically-recognized term. This term has been given two separate, but overlapping, meanings.

The first, and simpler, meaning relates to the reddish color a totally eclipsed Moon takes on to observers on Earth. As sunlight penetrates the atmosphere of Earth, the gaseous layer filters and refracts the rays in such a way that the green to violet wavelengths on the visible spectrum scatter more strongly than the red, thus giving the Moon a reddish cast.

The second meaning of "blood moon" has been derived from this apparent coloration by two fundamentalist Christian pastors, Mark Blitz and John Hagee. They claimed that the 2014–15 "lunar tetrad" of four lunar eclipses coinciding with the feasts of Passover and Tabernacles matched the "moon turning to blood" described in the Book of Joel of the Hebrew Bible.This tetrad was claimed to herald the Second Coming of Christ and the Rapture as described in the Book of Revelations on the date of the first of the eclipses in this sequence on April 15, 2014.

The moon will glide into Earth's shadow Friday in what will be the longest lunar eclipse of the century. The eclipse will stretch from South America to New Zealand on Friday and last almost four hours, causing the moon to appear red, a phenomenon referred to as a blood moon.




For a total lunar eclipse to happen, the Moon must be full, which means it is directly opposite the Sun, with Earth in between.  The eclipse happens when the Moon moves into the shadow cast by the Sun shining on Earth.  We don't have an eclipse every   month because sometimes the Moon is above the shadow, sometimes below. 

During the eclipse, the Moon often looks reddish because sunlight has passed through Earth's atmosphere, which filters out most of its blue light.  This eerie, harmless effect has earned the tongue-in-cheek nickname "blood moon."
A telescope is not needed to view a lunar eclipse-- just find the Moon in the sky and enjoy.  

 


Occurrence
This multi-exposure sequence shows the August 2017 lunar eclipse visible from the ESO headquarters.


At least two lunar eclipses and as many as five occur every year, although total lunar eclipses are significantly less common. If the date and time of an eclipse is known, the occurrences of upcoming eclipses are predictable using an eclipse cycle, like the saros.



Lunar Eclipse  A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes directly behind Earth and into its shadow. This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and the Moon are aligned (in syzygy) exactly or very closely so, with the planet in between. Hence, a lunar eclipse can occur only on the night of a full moon. The type and length of an eclipse depend on the Moon's proximity to either node of its orbit.

During a total lunar eclipse, Earth completely blocks direct sunlight from reaching the Moon. The only light reflected from the lunar surface has been refracted by Earth's atmosphere. This light appears reddish for the same reason that a sunset or sunrise does: the Rayleigh scattering of bluer light. Due to this reddish color, a totally eclipsed Moon is sometimes called a blood moon. Unlike a solar eclipse, which can be viewed only from a certain relatively small area of the world, a lunar eclipse may be viewed from anywhere on the night side of Earth. A total lunar eclipse lasts a few hours, whereas a total solar eclipse lasts only a few minutes as viewed from any given place, due to the smaller size of the Moon's shadow. Also unlike solar eclipses, lunar eclipses are safe to view without any eye protection or special precautions, as they are dimmer than the full Moon.


 





 

Lunar eclipse in culture

Several cultures have myths related to lunar eclipses or allude to the lunar eclipse as being a good or bad omen. The Egyptians saw the eclipse as a sow swallowing the moon for a short time; other cultures view the eclipse as the moon being swallowed by other animals, such as a jaguar in Mayan tradition, or a three legged toad in China. Some societies thought it was a demon swallowing the moon, and that they could chase it away by throwing stones and curses at it. The Greeks were ahead of their time when they said the Earth was round and used the shadow from the lunar eclipse as evidence. Some Hindus believe in the importance of bathing in the Ganges River following an eclipse because it will help to achieve salvation.
 
Chinese During the Zhou Dynasty in the Book of Songs, the sight of a red moon engulfed in darkness was believed to foreshadow famine or disease.

 

 

 

Blood Moon Prophecy?


The Blood Moon Prophecy is an idea popularized by Christian pastors John Hagee and Mark Biltz that states the upcoming tetrad (a series of four consecutive total lunar eclipses, with six full moons in between, and no intervening partial lunar eclipses) which begins with the April 2014 lunar eclipse is a sign of significant things to come. 
The Blood Moon Prophecy has quickly gained attention on the Internet after Biltz first proposed it in 2008, and has gained mainstream media attention as the April 15, 2014 lunar eclipse has approached. Despite the attention, few Christians believe the prophecy. It has been criticized by both mainstream Christian sources and secular astronomy blogs. Critics point out that tetrads that correspond with Jewish feasts are not as rare as Hagee and Biltz imply, that the eclipses will not be visible in Israel, and that the Bible also states it is impossible to know when the Second Coming will occur.
