Musical Monday: Bad Moon Rising

Monday, April 14, 2014

Tonight there will be a lunar eclipse at approximately 2AM EDT (Tuesday morning).  Are you planning on watching it?  Many are speculating that since it is the first in a series of four consecutive complete lunar eclipses spaced approximately six months apart (called a tetrad) that it signifies something significant in history.  I don't think I've ever seen a blood moon before, although I know they've occured during my lifetime.

I have no idea if anything of historic significance will happen, or if it's the beginning of the end, the rapture or tribulation, etc.  But I do know that it will be a pretty sight, and that God created a beautiful universe.

In honor of the eclipse, I'm in the mood to hear a little Southern Rock and Roll:  Credence Clearwater Revivival's Bad Moon Rising.  The lyrics are included in the video!

So I think I'll make some coffee, stay up, and watch the eclipse!

Until next time...

  1. I think it will be too overcast here to see the eclipse. It's snowing right now!

  2. Dont come around tonight.....cuz it is POURING here!

  3. I wish we could see it here. We have heavy clouds and snow coming. UGH!!! Have fun -get a picture, will you? xo Diana

  4. I hope we can see it without having to go out and drive up a mountain or a hike in the dark.

  5. Sounds great. It was spectacular in my neck of the woods... Blood on the moon... Makes me think of Practical Magic...

  6. I love this song. You chose wisely. The day was an emotional one, I could not make past one. I will catch the next one I hope. I am sure it was awesome.

  7. So, did you... stay up? We had rain so no hope of seeing that. I have stayed up in the past for a variety of different night sky events and always appreciated it. Reminds you of the wonder of our planet and the minuteness of it at the same time.

  8. I had to watch the NASA USTREAM because it was too cloudy and snowing a little where I'm at. The Blood Moon looked mostly orange on the feed.

  9. GREAT song choice and super appropriate! Thanks for linking up!

  10. We'd had rainy skies last night so watching the eclipse wasn't possible. Boo! I hope you were able to see it from your yard.

  11. RJ,
    Perfect song for the event. I slept through it but I loved seeing the pictures and hearing all about it.
