Total lunar eclipse to take place on April 14-15

Sky watchers will be able to feast their eyes on an unusual celestial event on the night of April 14-15, when a rare blood Moon will rise during total eclipse.

According to NASA astronomers, the Moon will start entering into the Earth's shadow at 11:58 p. m. on the night of April 14-15. The natural satellite will totally immerse in Earth's shadow at 1:07 a. m. on the morning of April 15.

The Moon will start re-emerging from the shadow at 2:25 a. m.; and by 3:30 in the morning, the full moon will have recovered its normal splendor. The unusual celestial event will grant viewers a spectacular blood-red bulb.

While lunar eclipses are not seen as bad omens in the modern age, some people do believe that the upcoming lunar eclipse will lead to start of terrible days.

Pastor and apocalypse author, John Hagee, wants cited Joel 2:31 as evidence of imminent terrible days. Joel 2:31 states, "The sun will be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes."

However, many can argue that the Sun will not turn into darkness during the eclipse, given the fact that it is an enormous sphere of burning helium.
