If you’re wondering why your life has seemed a little (or a lot) off-kilter lately, worry no further: you can blame all the weird energy, bad omens and possible witchcraft on the blood moon 2014.

What’s a blood moon, you ask? According to a definition Jezebel has acquired from NBC news, "A dusty red moon known as a ‘blood moon’ will be visible throughout the Western Hemisphere early Tuesday morning, the first of four such lunar eclipses over the next year and a half...The moon turns red during an eclipse because the sunlight is refracted, similar to the way it is bent during a sunset." It’s also super-rare and will maybe wreak havoc upon your life.

The NASA Lunar Eclipse Group on Flickr has some seriously amazing photos that showcase the stunning natural magnetism of the blood moon. Whether up close or far away, these images encapsulate the wonder of our solar system. The Flickr account is especially awesome considering the rarity of the blood moon. And I must admit, it’s rather pretty despite its dire astrological consequences.
