Eclipses usually foretold disaster. The Norse believed the wolf Hati devoured the moon and we were seeing her blood. The blood moon will begin tonight and last for several hours in different phases across the US. This blood moon also coordinates with Passover and the exodus of Egypt and the plagues that hit Egypt. Now we understand that the shadow of the Earth passes between the Sun and Moon, casting it into shadow. The work of the atmosphere does the rest. Luckily, I have a better camera to get this one, barring a cloudy night sky, we will see. After temps a couple days ago in the 80's, tonight will be a balmy 27 degrees.
