(WGNO) – Get ready for an unusually beautiful moon to grace the night skies in the coming months. NASA says there will be a total lunar eclipse early Tuesday morning that will turn the moon a burnt reddish orange. (Best times to see the red moon is between 2:06-3:25 a.m.)

It’s called a Blood Moon, and this one is just the first in a series of four consecutive total eclipses — and that, according to Christian extremists, are a foreshadowing of the “end of days” and the second coming of Christ.

“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the lord comes,” [Joel 2:31] reads a passage from the King James bible.

But in this case, the accompanied four “blood red” moons – which will start Tuesday and end in September of 2015, has only occurred three times in the past 500 years.

In 1493, 1949, and 1967.

According to historians, each time it happened it coincided with a globally significant religious event.

In 1493 the lunar phenomenon occurred during the expulsion of Jews by the Spanish Inquisition.

The second occurred simultaneously with the establishment of the state of Israel, while the third happened less than 20 years later in 1967 where it coincided with the six day Arab-Israeli war.

Not all convinced

NASA lunar eclipse expert Fred Espenak told USA Today that four consecutive complete lunar eclipse, also known as tetrads, is not particularly rare.  Noting in a statement that there are nine sets of tetrads during the 21st century.

He said there have been periods with no tetrads, notably from 1600 to 1900.

The next tetrad will begin in 2032.

    First the end of days was supposed to be December 21, 2012. Now it’s predicted to be because of the color of the moon. The fact is that nobody except GOD knows. I’m not afraid. Because I know in my heart that I will see my loved ones when it does happen and I will be going to my true Home and walk with Jesus.

    So if we believe the bible we are considered Christian Extremists? I will tell everyone that I see, know or meet to no longer watch your station because of your wording and opinions concerning Christians!
