(Of course it means the end is nigh ... I s'pose.) Yes

Not until the last one in 2015 Tongue The first 3 are just "signs".

That's good. I'll repent next week, or maybe next month.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

At this stage, the red is going through another cycle; the lighter red which supplanted the gold is being disposed by red darker still, about a third of the lighter red remains.

Dark red = umbra

Lighter red = penumbra

All good things must come to an end; it appears the dark is receding, followed by a growing edge of gross incandescence.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

Sun's already up here.

That tends to happen on the other side of the world. Thumbsup

Tonight has been a very good night, just by my seeing that red moon.

Anybody else seeing this?

As of posting, the moon is a bright gold and about a third is obscured.

I noticed that on my way to work and assumed it was cloud cover, or something.

I got to watch it getting covered and turning red. Cool.

At which point some nasty clouds came along and ruined my fun. Boooooo, clouds.

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?

Watched an absolute beauty a few years ago... The whole Moon turned blood red.

I missed it. I went to bed at midnight and it was all normal looking.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

The clouds that rolled in yesterday rolled out 45 minutes after moonset. Weeping
