    Dec. 10, 2011 Eclipse: Large blood red moon to loom over North American skies
    December 7, 2011 – SPACE – Waking up before sunrise can be tough to do, especially on a weekend. On Saturday, Dec. 10th, you might be glad you did. A total eclipse of the Moon will be visible in the early morning skies of western Northern America. The action begins around 4:45 am Pacific Standard Time when the red shadow of Earth first falls across the lunar disk. By 6:05 am Pacific Time, the Moon will be fully engulfed in red light. This event—the last total lunar eclipse until 2014—is visible from the Pacific side of North America, across the entire Pacific Ocean to Asia and Eastern Europe. Not only will the Moon be beautifully red, it will also be inflated by the Moon illusion. For reasons not fully understood by astronomers or psychologists, low-hanging Moons look unnaturally large when they beam through trees, buildings and other foreground objects. In fact, a low Moon is no wider than any other Moon (cameras prove it) but the human brain insists otherwise. To observers in the western USA, therefore, the eclipse will appear super-sized. Why the red color? Earth’s stratosphere is the key: “During a lunar eclipse, most of the light illuminating the moon passes through the stratosphere where it is reddened by scattering,” he explains. “If the stratosphere is loaded with dust from volcanic eruptions, the eclipse will be dark; a clear stratosphere, on the other hand, produces a brighter eclipse. At the moment, the stratosphere is mostly clear with little input from recent volcanoes.” -NASA

    No safety on the moon: strong CME could sandblast the entire lunar surface
    December 7, 2011 – SPACE – Solar storms and associated Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) can significantly erode the lunar surface according to a new set of computer simulations by NASA scientists. In addition to removing a surprisingly large amount of material from the lunar surface, this could be a major method of atmospheric loss for planets like Mars that are unprotected by a global magnetic field. The research is being led by Rosemary Killen at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md., as part of the Dynamic Response of the Environment At the Moon (DREAM) team within the NASA Lunar Science Institute. CMEs are basically an intense gust of the normal solar wind, a diffuse stream of electrically conductive gas called plasma that’s blown outward from the surface of the Sun into space. A strong CME may contain around a billion tons of plasma moving at up to a million miles per hour in a cloud many times the size of Earth. The moon has just the barest wisp of an atmosphere, technically called an exosphere because it is so tenuous, which leaves it vulnerable to CME effects. The plasma from CMEs impacts the lunar surface, and atoms from the surface are ejected in a process called “sputtering.” “We found that when this massive cloud of plasma strikes the moon, it acts like a sandblaster and easily removes volatile material from the surface,” said William Farrell, DREAM team lead at NASA Goddard. “The model predicts 100 to 200 tons of lunar material — the equivalent of 10 dump truck loads — could be stripped off the lunar surface during the typical 2-day passage of a CME.” This is the first time researchers have attempted to predict the effects of a CME on the moon. –Science Daily

    I think the prophecies have more to do with the dragon tail of a comet creating a red moon burgundia.

    Sorry Chris about your viewing location. We will likely have the skies covered in clouds where we are as this is our rainy season.

    TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE: Today, Dec. 10th, the full Moon passed through the shadow of Earth, producing a total lunar eclipse visible across the Pacific hemisphere. Don Oberbeck sends this picture of the partially-eclipsed Moon setting behind the Rocky Mountains near Boulder, CO: "The Moon set behind Long's Peak at 6:49 am MST moments before totality," says Oberbeck.

    Skywatchers enjoy lunar eclipse
    Skywatchers have been enjoying the last total lunar eclipse until 2014. The spectacle, which occurs when the earth casts its shadow over the Moon, has been watched from Australia, Asia and North America. At some points, indirect sunlight still illuminated the Moon, turning it a dramatic shade of red. The shadow started to fall at 11:33 GMT and ended after 17:30 GMT. The moon was totally eclipsed for 51 minutes eight seconds.

    December 10, 2011 The moon will be turning a vivid red to viewers in western North America during a total lunar eclipse on Saturday, Dec. 10.

    Those in the Pacific Time zone will be able to catch the event starting at 6:05 am and lasting until 6:57 am, which means only those who wake up early (or go to bed very late) will manage to glimpse the blood-red moon before the sun rises.

    Revelation 6

    1And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.

    2And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

    3And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.

    4And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

    5And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.

    6And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

    7And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.

    8And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

    9And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

    10And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

    11And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

    12And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

    13And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

    14And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

    15And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

    16And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

    17For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

    This reminds me of the shooting star i saw while watching the moon disappear ...

    did anyone else notice any shooting stars while watching personally?

    none of the footage ive seen thus far have had any stars at all...

    TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE: On Saturday, Dec. 10th, sky watchers across the Pacific witnessed a total eclipse of the Moon. During its hour-long transit through Earth's shadow, the Moon turned the color of the shadow itself--bright copper. The hue was meaningful to scientists who monitor lunar eclipses as part of their research on climate change. More on that below, but first regard this snapshot taken by James Barclay of Maidenwell, Queensland, Australia:

    Atmospheric scientist Richard Keen of the University of Colorado watched the event from Hawaii: "We had a fine warm morning for the eclipse here near Hale'iwa on Oahu'a North Shore. The eclipse was accompanied by the thunder of surf from the Banzai Pipeline, where later in the day surfers competed for the perfect ride," he says.

    Keen wasn't just enjoying the view; he was also analyzing the event for scientific purposes. Lunar eclipses offer a unique way to assess the global dustiness of Earth's stratosphere. The scattering action of dust casts a red light into Earth's shadow. Lots of dust yields a deep red eclipse, while less dust produces a bright coppery hue.

    The bright copper color of Saturday's eclipse suggests that the stratosphere is relatively clear. "My preliminary measurement of the brightness of the eclipse is magnitude -2.5 at mid-eclipse," says Keen. "It appears the clear stratospheric conditions of recent years is continuing."

    This is important because the stratosphere affects climate; a clear stratosphere "lets the sunshine in" to warm the Earth below. At a 2008 SORCE conference Keen reported that "The lunar eclipse record indicates a clear stratosphere over the past decade, and that this has contributed about 0.2 degrees to recent warming."

    The stratosphere has another effect on lunar eclipses. Note the soft blue colors in this picture from Shahrin Ahmad of Teluk Kemang, Malaysia:

    This is the "turquoise fringe" often seen during total lunar eclipses. Keen explains: "Light passing through the upper stratosphere penetrates the ozone layer, which absorbs red light and actually makes the passing light ray bluer. This can be seen as a soft blue fringe around the red core of Earth's shadow."

    Carol, thanks for putting up the article and photos. Did you get to see it in person? I am having a laugh. The turquoise moon effect was most likely described by a color blind person, no? It looks lavender to me. Doesn't really matter, but the name turquoise moon doesn't really help identification, does it?

    You're most welcome Linda. My husband and daughter got up to watch at 3 am. I passed. The last time I watched an eclipse was in San Francisco quite awhile back. This one, from our location had the moon up high in the sky. There were others who watched from the beach which was probably a lot warmer then where we are situated on the mountain side.

    Yeah, Carol, if it's cold outside and three AM, I'd rather see pictures. Ya don't hafta freeze yer hiney off. It's not the same as live viewing, but the photos are actually better for seeing detail. In the dark ages, people hid from the sight of the eclipses thinking they brought bad luck. I'd look up the lore just cause I love literature and history, but the dark ages still creep me out.

    The dark ages creep me out too. Too bad we're still living in them when it comes to the New World Order's agenda and just how asleep most people sitting in front of a TV really are. I say toss out the TVs and surf the internet where 'real' news is emerging on a regular basis. CNN and Fox spoon fed pablum is a bit too narrow-minded and mind-controlled for me. One of the things I learned when I worked in government is just deliver the message Government officials wants the populace to walk away with and don't tell the truth as it might upset the people - who in their opinion are just trouble makers when they now what's really going on.

    We need an EVOLUTION in world government and the way business is done.

    Let's change the words, Carol, from: "need" a revolution in the way business is done, to "we will manifest" a revolution in the way business is done. My ancestors played fair. Cheaters got run out of town. That's what built our country's great business model in the first place. It was trust. We need it back. Or, "we will have it back!"
