1. Thanks! I had no idea. How's that possible?

Eclipses usually get some attention.

4. Yep

We’ll have a series of 3 full supermoons on January 21, February 19 and March 21, 2019. Of these, the February 19 full moon will be the closest and largest full supermoon of 2019.

5. I'm staying inside and locking my doors, which I never do.

Sounds like there's going to be a lot of howling going on.

7. So, not tonight, then. Around midnight Eastern, Jan 20-21st

The day it happens on is probably the most important bit of the 'guide'.

9. Thanks for scientific reference to eclipse and not some rw blood moon end-of-world prophecy if true

.and if had occurred as they [evangelical crazies] predicted in last cycle of 4 blood moon ending in 2015 well..we'd would have been toast. Anyway, as myths go... well, it was just a myth--we're still here to witness this next event. BUT, wait ....they have a biblical prophecy for this event too and it involves their savior "saint donthecon" and boy did they pull this one out of the nethers....seems like Jan 20, 2019 may be the day we meet our maker or not [NOT!] I'm providing excerpt and link because we have a mal [bad, evil] hombre in the WH who has surrounded himself with evangelical end of days crazies who believe this garbage based on biblical myths. Myths, biblical prophecies that may influence policies that can harm people and use as fear propaganda tactic. Here is excerpt and link:

Snip. This upcoming blood moon will bring together heaven and earth as the eclipse coincides with the Jewish holiday of Tu B’Shevat (the 15th day of the Hebrew month Shevat), the arboreal New Year and the second anniversary of Donald Trump’s inauguration as President. Lest this be perceived as happenstance, it should be noted that Trump was born on the night of June 14, 1946, within fifteen minutes of a total lunar eclipse and 700 days before the state of Israel was established. Trump’s lucky sevens did not end there. When he was sworn in as President on January 20, 2017, he was 70-years-old, seven months and seven days.
