Fourth and final blood moon tetrad coincides with super moon September 2015
September 27-28 will put on display for anyone watching the fourth and final blood moon tetrad that has coincided with the Jewish feasts of Passover and Tabernacles for the last two years. Many have thought these occurrences to be spiritually significant, and truly only history will tell us of any significance in these matters. Plus, tonight there will also be a super moon occurring as well, which will cause the moon to look excessively larger than normal. This is also called the Harvest Moon.
If you live in the Northern hemisphere, the blood moon eclipse will begin at 1:07 UT, which translates to our time in the Central daylight time zone as:
Central Daylight Time (September 27, 2015)
Partial umbral eclipse begins: 8:07 p.m. CDT on September 27
Total eclipse begins: 9:11 p.m. CDT
Greatest eclipse: 9:47 p.m. CDT
Total eclipse ends: 10:23 p.m. CDT
Partial eclipse ends: 11:27 p.m. CDT Super blood moon central daylight times
However, if you live in central Illinois as of this writing, clouds have moved in with light rain and so unfortunately, unless it clears or there is a patch of open sky, the blood moon tetrad will not be as visible as hoped for tonight. It might be worth driving to find an open portion of the sky.

While it is fairly rare, a tetrad of lunar eclipses has occurred before and will occur again in the future. History and science tell us that tetrads or blood moons also came to pass in the following years:
That means that it’s been 46 years since this has happened, making it something that definitely gets the attention of the masses when it does occur.
So if you have the opportunity for a clear sky tonight, it is definitely worth going outside from 9 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. CDT, which will conclude the super blood moon tonight.
