    Blood Moon set as lunar eclipse nears early Wednesday

    Blood moon returns early Wednesday, and this time it's bigger

    (CNN) -- Blood moon, Act II, opens soon in the heavens near you. And it will be bigger than Act I.

    If you live in the western half of the United States, you'll have a front-row seat on a lunar eclipse that will turn the moon a burnt reddish orange for about an hour Wednesday, creating the second blood moon in relatively short succession.

    The full eclipse will start at 6:25 a.m. ET [on 08 October], NASA says, and last until 7:24 a.m. ET.

    Because it happens right after the perigee, the closest point to Earth in the moon's orbit, this blood moon will be nearly the size of a super moon -- appearing 5.3% larger than the previous blood moon on April 15.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

    Much to my surprise, we actually saw the "blood moon" quite clearly in the dark, desert sky!

    Seems like we West Coasters always get these phenomena during daylight hours or when the marine layer is thick, etc. But this time "we" nailed it!

    Here in East Tennessee, on the very western edge of the Eastern Time Zone, it is always too cloudy for me to see any of these phenomenon! Must be those darn Smoky Mountains!

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.
