Have you ever seen a Blood Moon? Its when the moon gets a red tint to it. From what I hear it means something bad will happen dont know if that is true though. Its really a pretty moon. Here is a pic I took. I had to zoom way out and it still looked like a dot LOL. Once I croped it you can see it better. What do you think about a Blood Moon? Does it mean something bad will happen?

I saw it in Britain, in March. It was the most fantastic sight I have ever seen. It changed from silver to black to blood red, to orange to yellow, to silver, and looked so haunting hanging red in a darkened sky. I've never ever seen anything like that before, and will certainly be up for watching the next one. No, it doesn't mean something bad will happen, it's just a lunar eclipse but the ancients used to fear it. After I'd watched the spectacle, I wrote a poem about it, which you may like to read. You can find it on www.freewebs/darkwing3, on the Moon Page. Brightest Blessings.

Blood moon as we know takes plae when there is a lunar eclipse. That is, when the Earth is between the sun and the moon so that the shadow of the Earth falls on the moon. Perosnally, I have witnessed it last night (August 28, 2007)here in our place (Davao City, Philippines) between 5:52 to 7:22 p.m., peaked at 6:37 p.m. (local time) and lasted a total of 45 minutes and 23 seconds(according to our local PAGASA weather bureau). I heard some people like astrologers and historians saying that this celestial phenomenon would trigger some bad events in the future just like what happened many years past. There are even traditions and superstitious beliefs related to this event. I am not so much into this kind of thing because I only rely my future and life to the One God.

I woke up this morning at about 6am and I looked right at the Blood Moon. There was a lunar eclipse last night, and I caught the very last of it this morning. It really is an awesome thing to see. It's been on the news all day. I'm not exactly sure what all the myths are involving it, but I think it has something to do with being a precursor to bad events.

I had been sleeping for 20 hours...I don't even know why....LOL..I wish I could have seen it too! Maybe that is the bad thing that happens to some people...they sleep for 20 hours....LOL

From what people have told me, It was hot that day that's why the moon looked like that.. rather it's true or not i don't know, how ever the next day it was very very warm so it could have something to do with the temps also.. Something bad will happen?? I don't believe so people come up with things like this to scare other people rather if something bad happens or not it's done for a reason not because the moon has red in it.. just my oppion!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hunter's_moon I don't know if anything bad happens but I did find a definition for it. I thought it was quite interesting if you would like to read it. It is a really beautiful moon. Thank you for sharing.
