Scientists Say Something Bright and Very Red is Coming to the Night Sky
Astronomy buffs and sky watchers will be in a show in late July when two big red objects will appear in the night sky.
Space.com is reporting that not only will the planet Mars make it';s closest approach to Earth since 2003, but we're also due for another Blood Moon. A "blood moon" is a common name for a total lunar eclipse, when the Moon passes behind the Earth's shadow, directly opposite the Sun.
In fact, CBN says it will be the longest lunar eclipse of the century. This, and the approach of Mars is all happening on July 27.
Of course, there's a bit of a catch. The lunar eclipse will be seen best in Africa, the Middle East, southern Asia and the Indian Ocean. For those of us in the Western Hemisphere, it looks we'll have to watch it live online.
Naturally, anytime something unusual like this happens on a celestial level, you get all the crazies coming out o the woodwork saying the end of the world is coming.
