The lunar eclipse is going on now and the moon looks red. Such a beautiful sight! Ma rabu maasecha Hashem!

Yikes. Not sure what a red moon means, but a red sun is supposed to portend bloodshed, according to Torah sources.

I remember sitting on the BP/WB bus on the day the Holtzbergs were murdered and looking out the window at the setting sun and being taken aback by how red it was. Instinctively I felt it didn't herald good news. A while later I heard of the Holtzberg murders.

Hashem yinkam damam.

I learned in Nach that a red moon at the end of days means HaShem will soon destroy the reshaim. Forgot which sefer/Navi it was!

Just Googled and came upon this from Chabad.org. Sounds much better than a red sun!

In describing future events, the prophet Joel foretells that “[G‑d] will set wonders in the heavens and the earth: blood and fire and pillars of smoke; the sun will turn to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and awesome Day of G‑d.1”

There is much discussion in the commentaries about the meaning of this prophecy. Many explain it to be allegorical. However, the biblical commentator Rabbi David Kimchi (known as the RaDaK, 1160–1235) explains that when there is a total eclipse, the moon appears dark; however, when it is only partially covered, it appears red like blood, symbolizing the fall of the wicked.2
In other words, yes, according to some, a blood moon is indeed an omen, but an omen of the downfall of the wicked.

I'm looking all over in my area in Brooklyn and can't find the moon.
Does anyone in Brooklyn see it?

I was on the phone with my son in Baltimore when it was supposed to happen (at least the timing in my area) and neither of us could see it due to the clouds.
