Pardon me for the “sin of envy,” but fellow blogger Virginia Woodward, at Roses in the Rubble, got some fairly nice photos of last night’s “Super Blood Wolf Moon” lunar eclipse. My pics, on the other hand, are pretty poor, and not worth showing.
Like Virginia, I managed to brave the subfreezing temperatures in Williamsburg, Virginia, and I even convinced my wife to come out and moon gaze, for a few minutes. It was a spectacular sight, if you missed it.
Thankfully, the Internet did not seem too whipped up about supposed “Bible prophecy” concerning the lunar eclipse, except the normal nonsense from the usual cast of characters. Though there are some folks who seem fairly confident of a pretribulational rapture coming in 2019, or otherwise close to last night’s eclipse. The total eclipse of the moon began right at the very moment of moonset, in Jerusalem!!!… Ooooooh!!!!….. More exclamation points!!!!!
As for me, I just enjoyed the show that God put on last night for a huge chunk of humanity to see:
“For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made” (Romans 1:20a ESV).
Praise God! Head over to Virginia’s blog for what it looked like around midnight last night.
