A Tetrad of Lunar Eclipses - NASA

As a follow up to my recent article, 'Examining the 2014 April Grand Cardinal Cross and an approaching Blood Moon', this NASA based 4 minute video explains what a Tetrad of Lunar Eclipses are, from more of a scientific approach. Today's total lunar eclipse marks the beginning of this particular Tetrad. This eclipse is also being referred to as a Blood Moon because of the Tetrad relation.

The total lunar eclipse will be visible over most of the Western Hemisphere including east Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific ocean, and North and South America. Below are the viewing times based upon the specific time zones in question. For further information, check out the Wikipedia entry
