The first total lunar eclipse since December 2011 will take place April 14, 2014 with the best viewing over North America. It will begin at 1:58am EDT, peak at 3:06 to 4:25am and wrap up at 5:33am.

I remember the December 2011 lunar eclipse because I watched the entire event from our patio, bundled up in my husband’s sleeping bag with hot tea in one hand and binoculars in the other. I was so excited I went the entire night without sleep. I would frequently go into the house and email my friend who was also watching the eclipse.

A few interesting things about the Lunar Eclipse:

  • It begins the 4 Blood Moon Tetrad on Passover and Tabernacles 2 years in a row
  • First total lunar eclipse since December 2011
  • Since it will be centered over North America, I wonder what will be happening with our government to pressure Israel. –   “As recorded by Bill Koenig (Watch.org) September 3, 2008- “A Blood-Red Moon Rises over North America, Olmert Offers Temple Mount Sovereignty to the Palestinians, Olmert and Abbas Meet on Israel’s Land and Jerusalem, Bush Says Iran’s Actions Could Lead to a Shadow of a Nuclear Holocaust, and Bush Arrives in New Orleans for his 15th Post-Katrina Visit. These were the news headlines on the day of a total lunar eclipse that produced a “blood-red” moon, the second one in seven years with a connection to the Temple Mount.  A total lunar eclipse/”blood-red” moon occurred on July 16, 2000, while U.S. President Bill Clinton, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Palestinians President Yassar Arafat were at the Middle East Summit in Camp David. The sticking point that caused the summit to fall had to do with who would have sovereignty over the Temple Mount- the Israelis or the Palestinian Arabs.”

The next Lunar Eclipse will be on the first day of Tabernacles, October 8, 2014 and will be a partial Eclipse.  This also will be over North America! It will begin at 5:14am EDT with totality at 7:24am.

Two weeks later will be the only Solar Eclipse of the year and will be a partial, also over North America on October 23.  It will be seem at mid afternoon with 81% of the Sun is expected to be hidden.

The information above came from Astronomy Magazine, Sky Guide 2014, November 22, 2o13 issue. I have found this magazine to be a good accurate source. This should be an interesting year. I plan to blog often because there is much to view this year, especially since the Signs in the Heavens will be following God’s “fixed appointed times”, the Feasts of the Lord.

Keep looking up!
