Tonight is the second and final Blood Moon of the Tetrad for 2014.
However, this Blood Moon will occur in the early morning hours just before the moon sets.
On Wednesday October 8, at about 6:25 am EST, the second Blood moon of the Tetrad will appear.
It will be the final Blood Moon for 2014; however, there are two more Blood Moons which will appear in 2015 completing the tetrad, one in April and the other in September. As stated numerous times before, this tetrad's appearance also marks the exact dates of major Jewish holidays, making it extraordinarily significant.
But, why is it significant?
Biblical scholars tell us that the tetrad has only appeared a few times in the past several hundred years. Not only that, but this particular tetrad heralds a time in which major events are unfolding across the planet.
So, what does it all mean?
Many believe that the lunar tetrad specifies a time of great change for Jews, while solar eclipses herald trouble or "change" for gentile nations.
The question is, does the lunar tetrad in conjunction with solar eclipses, among other heavenly signs, mean that something extraordinary is about to occur?
When we look at the significant confluence of events which have already occurred in 2014, it would seem that there may be more to these "signs" which we are given, than others would care to admit.
Below is more information on the event
From Farmers' Almanac
"For East Coasters, the total eclipse begins at 6:25 A.M. EDT; the Moon will be hanging low over the western horizon as the brightening dawn approaches, so only part of the eclipse may be seen before the Moon sets. The Moon may appear larger than usual, thanks to the “Moon Illusion."
In Central Time, the total eclipse starts at 5:25 A.M; in Mountain Time, it starts at 4:25 A.M.
For West Coasters, totality begins at 3:25 A.M. PDT (and ends at 4:24 A.M.). The viewing is the most favorable out West in the wee hours of darkness—and the Moon will be high in the sky."
From WQAD8 News: "The Earth will be directly between the sun and the full moon, making a total lunar eclipse visible before dawn Wednesday, October 8, 2014.
The eclipse will happen when the full moon passes directly through earth’s shadow.
“If you live in the Americas or Hawaii, the total eclipse happens before sunrise October 8,” according to earthsky.org. While the total part of the eclipse will last about an hour, the entire event will last more than three hours.
The night before the lunar eclipse, October 7–8, is the night of the Hunter’s Moon, which is the first full moon after the Harvest Moon. During a Hunter’s Moon, the time between moonrises is shorter than usual for several consecutive nights around the full moon, bringing bright moonlight from early evening until dawn on those nights.
This lunar eclipse is also dubbed a Blood Moon. That’s when there are four lunar eclipses in a row without a partial eclipse. This is called a lunar tetrad. This is the second Blood Moon with two more coming on April 4th and September 28th of 2015.
“During a lunar eclipse, the moon passes deep inside the shadow of our planet, a location that bathes the face of the moon in a coppery light,” according to information from NASA’s website.
NASA eclipse experts say some shades of turquoise might also be visible as you look at the moon during the eclipse. That color is especially visible in the first and last minutes of the total eclipse. Binoculars or a small telescope might help you view it."

Where is Kim? That question is increasingly being asked about the 31-year-old leader of the oddball state of North Korea. It gained added urgency on Tuesday, as North Korean and South Korean patrol boats exchanged warning fire at a disputed sea border in the Yellow Sea.
For just over a month now, Kim Jong Un, the Swiss boarding school-educated leader of the reclusive state formally known as the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, has not appeared in public. Adding to the intrigue was the sudden visit to South Korea by Kim’s No. 2, Vice Marshal Hwang Pyong So, along with two senior North Korean leaders last weekend, where the two sides pledged to restart reconciliation talks. It was the most senior visit by North Korean officials to the South in about five years, and the youthful Kim was nowhere to be seen.
It is still unclear whether Kim, who took over from his father Kim Jong Il upon his death in 2011, has successfully consolidated power in Pyongyang. Late last year, he presided over the execution of his once-powerful uncle, Jang Sung Thaek, accused in accounts by the official Korean Central News Agency of carrying out “anti-party, counter-revolutionary” and “reactionary” acts, as well as being “ideologically sick.”
For now, the betting is that the increasingly obese Kim is merely suffering from a physical ailment, most likely gout, according to reports by South Korean media, including Yonhap News. North Korea’s state broadcaster reported last month that Kim was feeling “discomfort.” On the recent surprise visit to South Korea, one of North Korea’s senior leaders reportedly told his South Korean counterpart, that there was “no problem” with Kim’s health.
When China’s then-incoming top leader Xi Jinping disappeared for two weeks (just half as long as Kim) in September 2012, it fanned a host of rumors that were anxiously exchanged in Beijing and in capitals around the world.
Reports ranged from the mundane (Xi was recovering from a back injury incurred playing soccer or swimming) to the alarming (he was enmeshed in vicious backroom politicking over the makeup of China’s soon-to-be-installed top leadership team)—even worse, that he had been injured in a failed assassination attempt. To date, the cause of Xi’s absence has not been revealed. Even if Kim eventually reappears, there is no guarantee that the world will soon know the cause of his disappearance.

When Barack Obama introduced himself at the 2004 Democratic National Convention declaring there was only one America – “not a liberal America and a conservative America” and “not a black America and white America” – many instantly envisioned him as a future presidential candidate with a unique heritage and extraordinary rhetorical skills that would enable him to unite a nation divided over political ideology and race.
Not long into his presidency, however, it became apparent to many, including some liberals, that Obama’s leadership and policies had only exacerbated the divisions.
Most attributed his failures to simple incompetence, but Michael Savage saw something much more sinister happening, and in his new book – “Stop the Coming Civil War” – he charges Obama is deliberately dividing the country.
At the time Savage finished the manuscript, several months ago, many continued to mock the provocative notion that any president would purposefully damage the nation.
But recent events, including the flood of Central American illegal aliens and the entry of the Ebola virus to the U.S., have made “Stop the Coming Civil War,” Savage’s 30th book, seem prophetic.
Meanwhile, an increasing number of bewildered Democrats are distancing themselves from Obama.
In his concluding chapter, Savage bluntly states his book, published by Center Street Books, is about “the conflict the current administration is pushing in the name of a broader worldwide liberal revolution.”
“As I see it, the forces of the left are attempting nothing less than a socialist takeover of the world economy and global politics,” he writes.
In an interview with WND, Savage said his publisher recently expressed to him amazement that “everything you said was going to happen or would happen is happening this minute.”
Savage sees it as deductive logic.
“Obama’s been engaged in a civil war from the day he seized the presidency,” Savage told WND. “He said he’s going to transform America. What was that? What was that declaration? It’s a declaration of war against the country’s traditional values and freedoms.”
“It was clear what he was going to do, but everyone was dancing around the golden calf,” he said.
As WND reported, Savage told his listeners last week that Ebola has now come to the U.S. because of Obama’s open-borders policy, which also has allowed once-eradicated diseases to enter through Central American illegal-alien minors who are being placed in public schools nationwide.
Savage said the “worst part of the story” is that if Obama is allowed to continue, “this country doesn’t survive.”
He noted Vice President Joseph Biden’s statement at the John F. Kennedy Forum at Harvard last Thursday that the post-World War II order is “literally fraying at the seams.”
“What was he trying to say?” Savage asked. “Was he playing like he’s suddenly discovered what he’s done to the country? And now he’s triangulating his opposition to make believe he’s the savior?
“It’s not just a joke,” he told WND. “We’re at the end of the road here. I don’t want to live in a Venezuela under a dictatorship and look back 40 years and say, ‘Why didn’t someone stop him?’”
In January, Savage told his listeners of his work on the book, calling the things he was discovering “frightening” and concluding, “The more I get into it, the worse it looks for us.”...

You're not alone, because the latest Gallup pole is telling experts that Obama and the Democrats will be facing a very steep uphill battle on November 4th.
In fact Gallup just reported the highest “no” vote percentage measured in the past 16 years with regard to support for the President's policies.
Unlike the last election, voters will be hitting Obama's party hard for what has become a uniquely failed presidency.
But, will there be a tsunami of voters sweeping the Dems out of the Senate in 2014?
According to the numbers, Americans are more fed up with Obama now than they were with Bush in 2006.
Either way, we'll know in about 4 weeks.....

Obama seems to be finding it harder and harder to hide his anti-Israel Islamic favoritism....the land in question is in Israel, and that's pretty much the end of the story.
Washington (AFP) - The White House delivered an extraordinary public rebuke to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday, after he said US criticism of Israeli settlement building ran counter to "American values."
After those talks at the White House, Washington strongly condemned reported Israeli plans to give the go-ahead for thousands more settler homes in East Jerusalem, prompting Netanyahu to return fire in an interview broadcast on US television Sunday.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest said it seemed "odd for (Netanyahu) to try to defend the actions of his government by saying that our response did not reflect American values."
"It's American values that lend this country’s unwavering support to Israel," Earnest said.
"It's American values that have led us to fight for and secure funding to strengthen Israel's security in tangible ways.
"It's American values that have led us to fund and build an Iron Dome system that have protected the lives of countless innocent Israeli citizens.
"It's American values that have led the United States to fully support Israel's right to defend itself. And it's American values that have led us to defend Israel in a variety of international forums, including a variety of United States forums."
In a portion of an interview with CBS Show "Face the Nation" that was carried online, Netanyahu said he found US criticism of settlement policy "baffling."
"It's against the American values. And it doesn't bode well for peace," he said.
Last week, Israeli Public radio quoted Netanyahu as telling Obama in talks in Washington on Wednesday to "study the facts and details before making statements" about the settlement plan.
The approval of 2,610 new housing units in Israeli-annexed Arab east Jerusalem angered Washington. Earnest said at the time it would "distance Israel from even its closest allies."
Netanyahu told Israeli journalists after the meeting that the plans had been in the pipeline for two years.
Housing Minister Uri Ariel told Israeli army radio that 1,000 of the units would "go to Arabs," but did not elaborate.
Israel's settlement building in the occupied West Bank and annexed east Jerusalem, which is illegal under international law, has caused the breakdown of several rounds of peace talks.
The settlements are built on land the Palestinians want for their potential future state, whose capital would be in east Jerusalem.
