Total Lunar Eclipse Monday Night
For a few hours on the night of Dec. 20 to Dec. 21, the attention of tens of millions of people will be drawn skyward, where the mottled, coppery globe of our moon will hang completely immersed in the long, tapering cone of shadow cast out into space by our Earth. If the weather is clear, favorably placed skywatchers will have a view of one of nature's most beautiful spectacles: a total eclipse of the moon.
Solstice-eclipse overlap first in 456 years
OTTAWA — This year's winter solstice — an event that will occur next Tuesday — will coincide with a full lunar eclipse in a union that hasn't been seen in 456 years.
January 4, 2011 – Partial Solar Eclipse Reminder
The citizens of planet Earth will be treated to not one – but four – partial solar eclipses and the first will begin on January 4. Ready to find out where and when?
Don’t be upset if you don’t catch this eclipse. The next will happen on June 1, 2011 and be for the eastern region of Asia, northern region of North America and some islands of the North Atlantic. Again? How about July 1, 2011 and this time be over the Indian Ocean and the small islands in this ocean. Still not found you? Then how about November 25, 2011 and southern regions of Africa and Australia and whole of Antarctica!
The planets are named for real beings, so that there is a literal interpretation necessary when it says the Sons of Elohim presented themselves before YHWH, but each have their influence in the planet bearing their own name.
Genesis tells us that the heavenly bodies are there to indicate the times we are in:
Then 'Elohiym said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the skies to divide the day from the night and let them be for signs and seasons and for days and years
1. The book of the courses of the luminaries of the heaven,
the relations of each, according to their classes,
their dominion and their seasons,
according to their names and places of origin,
and according to their months,
which Uriel, the holy angel, who was with me,
who is their guide, showed me;
and he showed me all their laws exactly as they are,
and how it is with regard to all the years of the world and unto eternity,
till the new creation is accomplished which dureth till eternity.
2. And this is the first law of the luminaries:
the luminary the Sun has its rising in the eastern portals of the heaven,
and its setting in the western portals of the heaven.
3. And I saw six portals in which the sun rises,
and six portals in which the sun sets
and the moon rises and sets in these portals,
and the leaders of the stars and those whom they lead:
six in the east and six in the west,
and all following each other in accurately corresponding order:
also many windows to the right and left of these portals.
Total lunar eclipse next week, not visible in US
LOS ANGELES (AP) - The year's first total eclipse of the moon will last an unusually long time, a rare celestial treat for a wide swath of the globe.
Except if you're in the United States and Canada. North America will be left out of Wednesday's lunar spectacle, which will be visible from start to finish from eastern Africa, central Asia, the Middle East and western Australia - weather permitting.
The period when Earth's shadow completely blocks the moon - known as totality - will last a whopping 1 hour and 40 minutes. The last time the moon was covered for this long was in July 2000, when it lasted 7 minutes longer than that.
The full moon normally glows from reflected sunlight. A total lunar eclipse occurs when the moon glides through the long shadow cast by the Earth and is blocked from the sunlight that illuminates it.
As the moon plunges deeper into the Earth's shadow, the disk will appear to gradually change color, turning from silver to orange or red. This is because some indirect sunlight still reaches the moon after passing through the Earth's atmosphere, which scatters blue light. Only red light strikes the moon, giving it an eerie crimson hue.
It's difficult to predict the exact shade the moon will take, which will depend on how much dust and clouds are in the atmosphere during the eclipse.
Since the moon will pass close to the center of the Earth's shadow, the total eclipse phase will be longer than usual, said NASA eclipse expert Fred Espenak at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland.
The entire eclipse will last a little over 5 1/2 hours. Observers in Europe will miss the first part of the show because it will occur before the moon rises. Eastern Asia and eastern Australia won't catch the final stages, which will happen after the moon sets. Portions of South America will be able see the moon entirely shrouded.
Unlike solar eclipses, lunar eclipses are safe to watch with the naked eye.
Keith Gleason, who runs the Sommers-Bausch Observatory in Boulder, Colo., is disappointed that he will not have a ringside seat to the upcoming eclipse. The last total lunar eclipse visible from the U.S. occurred on Dec. 21, 2010, which coincided with winter solstice and was widely observed. Some 1,400 people showed up for a viewing party at the observatory.
"We had an absolutely glorious time," he said.
The next total lunar eclipse will fall on Dec. 10 with best viewing from Asia and Australia. The moon will be completely blotted out for 51 minutes. Only parts of the U.S. including Hawaii and the Pacific Northwest will catch a glimpse.
The rest of the continental U.S. will have to wait until April 15, 2014 to witness a total lunar eclipse.
I have been looking at this place in Antarctica for a couple of weeks and now this vid is posted,
for those of you who do not have vid capabilities:
The camera is of this station in Antarctica and like many places it just photographs the scene in front of the camera every so often day and night. For a while there is an "extra" moon crossing over in the sky behind it. Then something strange happened. three men came out in suits another taller man without a suit stands with them and they all suddenly disappear. There is something in the sky that is almost like a 2nd moon and also something much brighter.
You too can go to the site and see these photos for your self.http://www.awi.de/NM_WebCam/
Tristan, I cannot agree with everything the vid guy is saying, but as for what we are seeing, well.
I cannot say what is on that vid is te sign of the end of the age, but I have been looking for just such a sign for a while, why?
Mat 2429 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
Mat 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.Num 24:17 I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.
Mat 2:1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
I will I went again to see what was going on now and here is that bluish planet on the webcamhttp://www.awi.de/NM_WebCam/livemovieT.html
Isn't that the point, Tristan? The world cannot see its sin. The world cannot see the beast system. The world cannot see the end of the age coming at them at lightening speed. But we who know Him and are led by Him see "the season" we are in. While I respect your viewpoint, Tristan, my viewpoint is totally different. In fact my viewpoint is different on things like a 7 yr. tribulation, the mark of the beast and so man things that "the church" has led us to believe. I began questioning the "facts" given to us by our "church" leaders and in particular everything Hal Lindsey in taught, when I began to read the Word for myself, not through traditions of men.
I agree one of the events that will let the whole world know the end is near hasn't happened yet, that being the destruction of Damascus and Lebanon, but I think the adversary may have fed us lies to hide the end from "the church". I have found so many "mistranslations" in the Word that cover up the things we discuss here from the church that a pattern of such is just fact for me, at least.
As Sinclair points out the world is asleep and dreaming, but praise Father, He has given His children eyes to see and ears to hear truth.
I think He uses the TV sometimes to teach me thing I need to know in order to see , too. Like last year, I watched a show on Nova about what happens when planets collide. Well, guess what happens, they don't actually collide, the gravitational forces of the masses instead create pressure on the surface of the planets Things get heated up, crusts becomes unstable, the planets may change their orbit or their rotation, and in the end what actually will happen is one of the objects will take a part of the other, which ever has the stronger gravitational force. That means a very destructive time for us who remain on earth something that makes nuclear war seem tame. What actually happens could be something like this:
Zec 14:7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.
Zec 14:8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.
Zec 14:9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.
Zec 14:10 All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin's gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king's winepresses.
Zec 14:11 And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.
Zec 14:12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.
John also describes this event:
Rev 16:20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
Rev 16:21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
What Father has taught me is this: in the Word when I find a mistranslation it is important for me to look and find what it is the enemy is trying to hide from us? And in life when the beast system covers up or mis-reports or begins calling names of those who do report things like conspiracy theorist or doom and gloomer , look deeper and see what they are trying to hide.
There was something on that vid. Neither the news nor the goverments are reporting this. I just wanted to share it with those who are looking and talking about just those things, like we do here.
