Blood Moon

blood-moonDid anyone catch that gorgeous red moon the other night? If you didn’t — don’t worry. It will happen 3 more times over the next 18 months. Called a “tetrad”, these types of lunar eclipses occur in 4 consecutive 6-month intervals.

The moon takes on this red glow because it is reflecting sunrises and sunsets occurring in other parts of the world. Absolutely fascinating.

The next “blood moon” will occur on October 8. If you live in Los Angeles, our incredible Griffith Observatory will accommodate visitors throughout the night for viewing. I may just have to join!
