Posted by on April 14, 2014

Whether you are a night owl or an early riser, or just one who loves to catch a glimpse of astronomical rarities, be sure to catch an amazing spectical in the early hours of April 15th 2014.


This will be the first of four “blood moons” which will grace the night skies on April 15, 2014; October 8, 2014; April 4, 2015, and September 28, 2015.

This event is known as a tetrad. “What is a tetrad? It’s four successive total lunar eclipses, with no partial lunar eclipses in between, each of which is separated from the other by six lunar months (six full moons).” –

Blood moon tetrads are remarkably rare. From 1600 to 1900 there were no tetrads which makes April 15th the start of a very uncommon event in history.

The best viewing times for the East Coast will be between 3:06am and 4:24am according to NASA.
