Is the blood moon that will rise on Monday night over America a sign of a world-shaking event in coming days? That's what bestselling author and televangelist pastor John Hagee is claiming.
He said, "Something is about to change and world history is going to change forever."
The phenomenon of a red moon is caused by a total lunar eclipse, says astronomer Jackie Faherty of the American Museum of Natural History in New York.
She told INSIDE EDITION, "When the moon goes behind the Earth's shadow and turns dark, and then, because the Earth atmosphere ends up refracting the light, it turns an array of colors, one of which could be a really deep, beautiful red."
Hear What Else Faherty Had To Say About the Blood Moon
Monday night’s blood moon is the first of four over the next 18 months—a rare astronomical event known as a Tetrad.
According to the pastor who wrote the book Four Blood Moons, it's a sign of the end of days. He points to a passage in The Bible: "The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord."
He says it's no coincidence that this blood moon begins at 3 a.m. East Coast Time on April 15th, the first full day of Passover.
He said, "The irony of what it takes to get the Sun, the Earth, and the Moon in a perfect alignment to have a blood moon and then for those blood moons to be on this exact date is uncoincidental."
But our expert says there is nothing to worry about, we'll still be here tomorrow. Faherty said, "As a scientist, there is no evidence at all for any correlation between astronomical phenomenon like a lunar eclipse and anything than happens on Earth."
