Apocalypse Now?

Socorro, NM, May 95 (photo AS)Here’s a happy reminder that the Middle Ages, as that old crank Carl Jung once wrote, “live on… merrily”.

The Washington Post has the glorious details:

Could a series of “blood moon” events be connected to Jesus’ return? Some Christians think so. In the wee hours of Tuesday (April 15) morning, the moon slid into Earth’s shadow, casting a reddish hue on the moon. There are about two lunar eclipses per year, according to NASA, but what’s unusual this time around is that there will be four blood moons within 18 months — astronomers call that a tetrad — and all of them occur during Jewish holidays.

Going to be quite a year.
