A while back my home burned down in a wildfire. I remember wondering what I was going to do, where I was going to stay.

I looked out above the horizon and through the smoke there was this blood-red full moon rising. It looked false in the sky. Scary.:(

Matched the mood.:(

Not really Christian, but it's a cute song.

It was absolutely glorious....

It had a constellation that we have never seen before. I will try to show how it was:

The moon was the biggest O. One of the stars was called Regulus and the other constellation was Gemini. I do not know what the upper star or planet was but it was very strange. It wasn't exactly like this but it's as close as I can get. It was also tipped to about a 10 degree angle to the right...
The first thing I thought of is that it looked like a cross coming to earth!
We have seen some pretty amazing things in the sky in our lifetimes but this was without a doubt the most amazing!

I saw it. The planet was Saturn, the star Regulus, and obviously the constellation Gemini. :) It was very peachy, reddish, ashy like color. It was a lot bigger, probably because it is closer to the Earth than another eclipse a few years back.

I repent! LOL!:)

I have seen that happen once before and I agree it was not a true red.
