For weeks, the news has been all about the blood moon and its possible significance, with talk by some that it could mark the end of times. This rare occurrence, which took place in the wee hours of the morning on Tuesday night is one of four that will occur, each on a significant Jewish holiday. (Passover began Monday, April 14, at sunset). The next will be on Sukkot (Oct. 8), then Passover next year (April 15) and Sukkot again on Sept. 28, 2015. According to NASA, seeing a tetrad (four blood moons) is rare in history, but more frequent beginning in the 21st century. The most unique aspect is that the moon was visible throughout the U.S. The moon turns coppery red as it picks up hints of light when it passes through the Earth’s shadow. Photo by
