Niagara by Night: Blood Moon and Moonbows

Cory Snoek's Eclipse Picture 2Did you see the eclipse last night (September 27, 2015)? Cory Snoek's Eclipse Picture 1 After an appropriate hesitation while arranging her veil of clouds, the moon blushed red and passed through Earth’s shadow in trailing robes of glory. Cory Snoek's Eclipse Picture 3 Isn’t the moon radiant?!

  1. We did not get to see the moon due to cloud cover and will not live to see the next one. Scripture ties blood moon to the ‘great and terrible day of the lord’ coming.

    The Joel Passage “I will pour out my Spirit on every kind of people: Your sons will prophesy, also your daughters. Your old men will dream, your young men will see visions. I’ll even pour out my Spirit on the servants, men and women both. I’ll set wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth below: Blood and fire and billowing smoke, the sun turning black and the moon blood-red, Before the Judgment Day of God, the Day tremendous and awesome. Whoever calls, ‘Help, God!’ gets help. On Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be a great rescue—just as God said. Included in the survivors are those that God calls.” (The Message)

    • Thank you, Ted, for sharing these awe-inspiring prophecies from God. Judgment will come, and a blood-red moon will be one of the signs of God’s judgment. How wonderful for you to remind us that God promises to help those who call on him for rescue. He is a God who hates sin but has mercy on us when we cry out to him for salvation.

  2. It was too cloudy for us to see the Blood Moon on Sunday night but it is wonderful to see the pictures that others were able to take.

    • I gather that it was cloudy until extremely late. My daughter-in-law was up with the baby, but Sammy was so wiggly that she couldn’t get a good picture so ended up waking Daniel. So…the views came with long patience and quite a bit of inconvenience for those who were able to wait it out! But…what a sight it must have been!

  3. These photos of Niagara Falls are so beautiful!! Nicely done!
