06 Oct The Blood Moon!
What could be a more perfect prelude to Halloween? Goblins all over the US are eagerly waiting the “blood moon” that will be visible this week. The red-hued moon will appear in the sky early this Wednesday morning…very early…so set your alarm clocks for about 5 a.m. if you want to see this spooky sight.
According to NASA, the full eclipse will start at 5:25 a.m. CST and last until 6:24 a.m. CST on October 8th.Weather permitting, one of the best places to see it will be Texas and the Dallas area, so we’re in luck and ready for a front row seat.
The creepy color comes from the edges of the sun peeking out around the periphery of the Earth, creating a global sunset shining on the moon. The planets have to align in just the right position for the rays to illuminate the moon. This lunar eclipse is rare, even more so that the moon will appear even larger than normal, making it that much more impressive.
Werewolves are sure to be howling as the red moon sets!
Superstitions abound surrounding the red moon. Many people think it’s a bad omen, but that’s just a superstition. But blood moons may bring out the werewolves and ghosts, so keep an eye out for anything strange that you might encounter on Tuesday night, as the blood moon approaches!
Mark you calendar for the blood moon later this week, and visit us this weekend at Thrillvania Haunted House Park.
