MOON, from page 1A unique thing about the 2014-2015 tetrad is that all of them are visible for all or parts of the USA." According to NASA, lunar eclipses appear about twice a year; however, a total lunar eclipse such as the one that occurred last week is less common. Espenak described tetrads as a frequent occurrence; however, for several hundred years there were no tetrads at all. It wasn't until the 21st century that they started recurring at a more frequent rate. The last tetrad seen was in 2003-04, and after this series, the next set won't be visible until 2032-33. The next three total lunar eclipses will occur in six-month intervals with no other lunar eclipse in between. The April event started with a penumbral eclipse around 10 p.m., with the moon's passage through Earth's shadow; by 11 p.m. only a fraction of the moon was visible as it dipped into the core of Earth's shadow; and by midnight the whole of the moon was transformed into a deep-red hue as the total eclipse began. The red moon was lit brightly in the sky until around 4 a.m. April 15. As the sun hides behind the earth it makes it appear like "the rim of the planet is on fire," wrote NASA. "As you scan your eye around Earth's circumference, you're seeing every sunrise and every sunset in the world, all of them, all at once. This incredible light beams into the heart of Earth's shadow, filling it with a coppery glow and transforming the Moon into a great red orb." Earthsky.org pointed out that in order for the biblical prophecy to be fulfilled, both a solar and a lunar eclipse would need to appear in the sky. NASA predicted the next solar eclipse would occur April 29, while the second lunar eclipse in the tetrad series won't appear until The Blood Moon shines over Lake Almanor at 2:13 a.m. as it reaches its greatest eclipse point, lighting up the entire sky before returning to its former white glory by 4 a.m. "As you scan your, eye around Earth's circumference, you're seeing every sunrise and every sunset in the world, all of them, all at once. This incredible light beams into the heart of Earth's shadow, filling it with a coppery glow and transforming the Moon into a great red orb." National Aeronautics and Space Administration which is also referred to as a Blood Moon, will coincide with the October event. The other two lunar occurrences are expected April 4, 2015, KENNEDY, from page 1A Oct. 8. A Hunter's Moon,  ,eaaSn on the baUot, and move will be better for his family, he struggles with leaving his position. "I just feel badly about leaving the county work undone," he said. Now either Jim Judd or Jeff Engel, the two other men running for District 5 supervisor, would finish the work. Kennedy's name will Schedule for 2014-15 tetrad Oct. 8 Penumbral eclipse begins: 12:15 a.m. Partial eclipse begins: 1:14 a.m. Total eclipse begins: 2:25 a.m. Greatest eclipse: 2:54 a.m. April 4, 2015 Penumbral begins: 1:01 a.m. Partial begins: 2:15 a.m. Total begins: 3:57 a.m. Greatest eclipse: 4:02 a.m. Sept. 27, 2015 Penumbral begins: 4:1 1 p.m. Partial begins: 5:07 p.m. Total begins: 6:11 p.m. Greatest eclipse: 7:23 p.m. even though he won't be campaigning for the position, people could still vote for him. In the unlikely scenario that he garnered 50 percent plus one of the vote, he would win. If that were to happen and Kennedy remained firm in his decision not to fulfill the term, then the governor would make an appointment.
