Hundreds Gather to See ‘Blood Moon’ Event

Hundreds of people gathered together at Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles with their iPhones, iPads, digital cameras and even some film cameras to capture 'blood moon' event. The event started at 10:58 p. m. Monday with full moon completely moving into earth's shadow.

With the passage of time, the shadow started to spread across when moon went completely under earth's shadow by 12:07 a. m. on Tuesday. Astronomers informed that earth would appear total black disk surrounded with by a fiery orange ring from the surface of moon.

The orange light was due to illumination by lunar eclipse and was the light comprising of all sunsets and sunrises at that moment. The first of the tetrad lunar impact was clearly visible to the entire continental United States and in some parts of Central and South America. The lunar eclipse has been visible in continental U. S. completely after two-and-half-years.

The complete phenomenon of 'Blood Moon' is clearly depicted in John Hagee's 2013 book: 'Four Blood Moons: Something Is About to Change'. The book explores the supernatural connection of certain celestial events to biblical prophecy.

Other three series of lunar eclipse are expected to occur on October 8, 2014, April 4, 2015 and September 28, 2015. Lunar eclipse is generally safe to be seen with naked eyes without using any special filters compared to solar eclipse.
