Super Blue Blood Moon?
Really? Well, yes. That what they’re calling it and here’s why:
When the moon is at perigee (closest point to earth in it’s orbit) it appears larger and is called “super” moon. When two full moons occur in the same calendar month (which usually happens every 3 years or so) it is called a “blue” moon. When a total lunar eclipse occurs (shadow of the earth passes across the surface of the moon, turning it dark red) it’s called a “blood” moon.
It is a rather rare occurrence. Apparently the last one was while Andrew Johnson was president (the guy after Lincoln.) And perhaps Jesse James pulled a heist under the light of a super blue blood moon 150 years ago.
Who cares? Well, maybe you do, maybe you don’t. But for those folks who have been “waiting for a sign” before they took that important step, why not use this “sign” as a reason to do something you’ve been putting off? I mean – as far as “signs” go, this is a pretty cool one. Perhaps the universe is trying to give you a nudge to stop procrastinating.
Halley’s Comet is too long a wait. Let’s do it now! 😉
