The moon is set to turn blood red this weekend in an event some pastors are claiming was predicted by the Bible as a sign of Christ’s return.
The ‘Blood Moon’ is a rare celestial event which will see the skies over North America, Asia and Australia be transformed into a deep, red colour.
It is set to be the third of four ‘Blood Moon’ events since 2014 which experts believe will be completed by the end of the year.
The lunar eclipses occur when the moon passes directly behind the earth into its shadow but the rare ‘Tetrad’ of four alignments in close proximity is said by NASA to have happened just a handful of times in the last 2,000 years.
