Parts of the world will experience a Blood Moon tonight (we're not one of them) but we ALL get to enjoy another round of apocalyptic predictions due to an unusual event.
According to two Christian ministers, today is the day the prophecies written about in the biblical Book of Revelation and the Book of Joel come to pass.
The fourth in a series of Blood Moons will appear in the skies Friday night, signaling what the doomsday sayers claim is the end of the world.
The lunar eclipse, which will appear red due to Rayleigh scattering of sunlight through the earth's atmosphere, will last for one hour and 43 minutes for those in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Australia and most of Asia and South America.
Astronomers and experts have dismissed the end of the world claims, which stem from the Bible passage, "The sun will turn into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes."
In case they are right THIS time, thanks for your reading and listening all these years on WHO Radio. But in case they are wrong, I'll have State Fair grandstand tickets to give away to the Peter Cetera/Blood, Sweat and Tears concert on Saturday, August 18. I'll be there...will you?
P.S. I am MORE upset about the fact that we don't get to see the Blood Moon than the possibility that the world will end.
