"There are more things in heaven and earth
than are dreamt of in our philosophy." *
Hamlet (1.5.167-8), Hamlet to Horatio:

"The sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood, before the day of the Lord comes, the great and magnificent day."  –  Acts 2:20

According to NASA and other astronomers, the full moon of April 14-15th will kick off a celestial phenomenon known as a "tetrad" of blood-red moons.

It's remarkable enough to anyone viewing a lunar eclipse as it is turned coppery-red from the "dispersed light from all the Earth's sunrises and sunsets [at once]."

However, this time there will be four of them, each one 6 months apart.

They say a tetrad of blood moons is rare, but even more significant, for Bible Believers especially, is the fact that each one will occur during two major Jewish Feast times in both years: Passover and the Feast of Tabernacles.

Another interesting fact to consider is what the Earth looks like from the position of the moon during one of these times.

What you'd see is the Earth coming between the sun and moon, eclipsing it. It would form a ring appearing like red fire all around the Earth.

* Shakespeare does not expand on the specific nature of Horatio's philosophy, and in the First Folio (1623), the text actually reads "our philosophy." Some editors, such as Dyce, White and Rowe, choose to use "our" instead of "your" (as found in Q2), believing Hamlet is speaking in general terms about the limitations of human thought.
