View Full Version : Bloody Moon?
Jun 25th, 2007, 1:19 AM
While I was chatting with friends online, I looked outside and noticed there was a starless sky. That's nothing out of the unusual because there's always more pollution in the city and it makes it harder for people to see the stars. But I cannot shake off a bad feeling when I saw a dull, blood red moon. As I watched it outside my window, it grew darker and darker until it faded into the darkness, no longer giving its light.
What does this mean? Is this a lunar eclipse or a hidden message from God that he's coming soon?

Is this a lunar eclipse That's one possibility. They do cause the Earth to turn red. If you tell me where you live and what time you saw this, I can find out for you.
Also, the moon can look like that near the horizon, as it is rising or setting. I've seen that as well. You say it disappeared. Was it near the horizon, where it possibly set? Or was it further up in the sky, where it might have been covered by a cloud?
I agree. Red moons do look creepy, but they aren't too uncommon.

Being in a city there will be a lot of pollution in the atmosphere above you that will contribute to the situation.
The prophecy regarding the moon turning red will be something of more substance and more permanent. When it happens it will be like global warming, everyone will notice. There will be a rational reason given for it happening etc but it will still be happening all the same.

Like dust and pollution in the atmosphere. That is the rational reason why it would appear red, but it is unusual for it to be red more than half the time now. I too live in a city, but I don't recall the moon being red as often as it is now. I look at it every night after leaving work at 11pm EST. It is most often dull to moderate red about 60% of the time. No one really talks about it, but the reason given is that trade winds are carrying dust from drought regions in Africa into the upper atmosphere.
This is fair enough, but all the time? Come on, there is obviously a change in the balance so to speak.

Where I am the moon is still white.
But my town is between two lakes in a million acer forest.
What is coming out the smoke stacks in your industrial area.
The red moon referred to in prophecy is the actual moon turning red.
This may interest you. Some time ago there was a meteor strike on the moon that was observed from earth based telescopes. The dust that was pushed up from the impact was red.
That would indicate that if the earth and the moon were to go through a very heavy meteor shower then multiple impacts would give the moon a red color and it would seem as if the stars are falling from heaven like a fig tree when it casts its fruits.
At least that is what I am looking out for.

The dust that was pushed up from the impact was red.I know the impact you are talking about, but the meteor that hit the moon was only about 12 cm big. The Hubble Space telescope couldn't pick up the crater from that impact it's so small, let alone would any telescope on Earth be able to pick up the color of dust it gave off.

No this one was reported and it specifically stated that the dust was red. That is why it stuck in my mind.

Well, I've done a ton of searches and cannot find anything about red dust. To me, I don't see how being able to see the color of dust on the moon from an impact like that is possible. The telescopes who saw the impact just aren't strong enough. They cannot even see the crater the impact created as it is barely a foot in diameter. Only a probe orbiting the moon would be close enough to see something like that, and as far as I can tell, no probe saw this impact. If you can find the article though, I will read it. I just don't the technology used to view this impact was strong enough to see what you are claiming it did.
