Astronomical Events "Before the Great and Awesome Day of the L-rd"

This coming Hoshana Rabba 5776, the 7th day of Sukkot, will most likely be that great and awesome day.  So it is best to prepare to view the astronomical events that precede that day according to Yoel 3:.   The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the Coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD!  Here they are quickly:

"The sun will turn to darkness.."

TOMORROW/ Today, Friday March 19th, 2015:

Up to 6% coverage by the moon over the sun in Yerushalayim  The eclipse begins here around 11:15am and reaches its 6% peak at 11:58am and ends completely by 12:40 pm.  Oh, the molad announced in Shul last Shabbat for Nissan was at 12:43pm on Friday.  See how the molad time comes immediately AFTER the moon passes through the plane between the edge of the earth and the edge of the sun.  That is the molad when the moon theoretically begins to "reflect" a slight amount of light from the sun.  Also, here is the map for the path of totality which starts south of Greenland, moving north of Scotland, and then north of Norway.

Then, on Sunday Sept. 13th, Erev Rosh HaShanah there will be a partial solar eclipse in the Southern Hemisphere.  It will be seen mostly in South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, and Mozambique and if you are a hearty soul in Antarctica.  Only in Antarctica will one be able to see up to 90% of the sun covered unless you are on a ship in the South Atlantic or the Indian Ocean.

"And the Moon will turn to blood..."

Pesach total lunar eclipse in the Pacific rim on April 4th, 2015.

Early morning Sukkot total lunar eclipse just before sunrise on the First Day of Sukkot 5776 in Eretz Yisrael!  Get up at 4am and watch the Moon turn red and reach totality before sunrise.  The times of totality will be from 5:13am until 6:22am.  Then shake your lulav and your etrog in your sukkah!
Here is the map of totality.  Notice that in Eretz Yisrael over 50% of the event will be seen including all of the totality when the Moon turns blood red.  

Before the Coming of the Great and Awesome Day of the L-rd!

In short, it should be pointed out that there are two astronomical events associated with this prophesy in Yoel 3 that can be seen in Eretz Yisrael. 1. partial eclipse of the top of the sun around Chatzot today for the molad of Nissan. We are told by Chaza"l that when the moon blocks the sun, the power of the nations decreases with respect to Klal Yisrael. If it decreases over those nations where the sun is most blocked by the moon, then Europe should begin to take a hit in its status during the Spring of the year 5775....since Nissan is not only the month of Spring but today is the Spring Equinox. The nations most affected by this solar eclipse are Great Britain and the Scandinavian countries. May they therefore see the greatest downfall!

2. The Blood Moon which can be fully seen from Eretz Yisrael in Tishrei will be seen in Yisrael 6 days before Hoshana Rabbah 5776!

No one is saying that this is the full meaning of the signs in Yo'el, but it needs to be pointed out. Why? because this total solar eclipse comes one week before Shabbat HaGadol (the Great Shabbat), and the total lunar eclipse on Sukkot morning comes 6 days before Hoshana Rabbah (The Great and Awesome Day)

I just viewed the solar eclipse near its maximum of 6% here in Israel with welder's glasses. Don't look at the sun directly without welder's glasses. If necessary poke a hole in a piece of thin cardboard and point it at the sun. Then take a white piece of paper and focus the image of the sun through the pin prick onto the piece of white paper.....for those who don't have welder's glasses.

Too late to help since it appears over in Shilo but we used our telescope with 90degree viewer and a 24mm objective to shoot a projection about 1/2 meter onto the wall and ceiling, perfect for the kids to enjoy. Also a great way to have kids count sunspots like the one which just shot enough solar wind to create aurora in the north visible during the eclipse.

Shloimie: The Pesach lunar eclipse over the Pacific rim covers those areas of the globe which will not see the Sukkot lunar eclipse 6 months later. Only together will the moon turn to blood over the entire globe. At the time of the Pesach lunar eclipse over the West Coast of the US, it will be the middle of the day on the first day of Pesach here in Eretz Yisrael.

In first public comments after Israeli elections, US president says his administration is evaluating options 'to make sure that we don't see a chaotic situation in the region' following PM's rejection of two-state solution and subsequently backtracking.

Kachlon just recommended Bibi (giving Bibi at least 61 seats) with all of his stipulations demanding promises in writing, sealed with blood so that these promises will not be broken. All of Kachlon's demands revolve around the economic sphere even if Michael Oren keeps spouting off his Erev Rav mouth about issues related to bowing before Obama. So now all hell can officially break loose. Obama will soon announce new punitive measures against Bibi's Israel.

US Not to Take Floor at UNHRC Anti-Israel Forum

In an unprecedented step, the United States will not be taking the floor at the UN Human Rights Council’s forum tonight (Monday) for the annual debate on Israeli violations in Palestinian territories, a US spokesman told Reuters, afterward declining further comment.

The United States, which has unfailingly appeared in order to defend the Jewish State, is backpedalling from its previous staunch position due to US President Barack Obama’s statement that he would be “reassessing” the US position vis-à-vis Israel. A7

I also think very little of Oren. I even suspected that it was he that squeeled to Obama on Israel ready to bomb Iran, which caused O to threaten Bibi. Kahlon, may end up being very good for the economy and all the social issues. He wants to break up the Lands Authority, and other stranglehold beauracies.

Here it is, the siman of the prophecy, "President Barack Obama said he’s determined to advance his agenda — regardless of Republican cooperation — “by hook or by crook.”

He certainly is a crook, but It's the "hook" in his cheek that he will be dragged to Jerusalem for his downfall. Does anyone remember it?

Says Rabbi Nir ben Artzi about the elections:

The Creator of the world election intervened most powerfully. The surveys were all true, they were not wrong! One thing they did not know - the Holy One, blessed be He Himself would step in and insert into the minds of Jews whom to vote for. He did a great miracle and turned everything around so that the right would win - because the Creator of the World knew that the left does not see the future and hence He stepped in and made a great miracles so to that the right would succeed. The Holy One, blessed be He cares about the Holy land and about the Jews who live in the Holy Land and doesn't not want anyone to touch even one inch of it.

Says Rabbi Nir ben Artzi about Jews who recline to move to the Land of Israel.

Some of the Jews insist not to come to Israel. My G'd help the people who divert Jews do not come to Land of Israel - G'd help them, they deal directly with the Holy One, blessed be He, and the Creator of the World will bring them to justice, they and their families, and their families, even repentance will not help them, because they delay the redemption of Israel and the crowning of the King Moshiach.

Ahh, yes, very interesting. Yechezkiel 38:4. ".....hooks into thy jaws..."
It used to be that so much turmoil took place with many years in between with so much to build up to in the process. Then, it was months, then weeks...
Now? Forget even days, it seems that literally every new day is something new from these non- leaders mouth's....
One would have to be living under a rock not to see what is truly building up in the world.
So many angles, too: financial; Russia; Russia's war and financial stuff; ME; hatred for Israel and Jews increasing; The fall- yes, the fall of the US from her height; immigration; the filth that is to be tolerated with toeva and the like; erev rav; elections and speeches; disrespect from all angles; North Korea; China; Brazil. You name it- it's all like a swirling hurricane that is huge, yet picking up speed.
When you have a few main American talk show hosts(political) call Obammy a "mentally unstable pathological evil man who needs help for his narcissism and temper tantrums", you know something is going on...
When you have an evil man take tax $ from his countrymen's wallets to fund a campaign to oust the PM of Israel, you know he feels threatened.
This is barely the tip of the iceberg.
Hashem is making things move and we need to move into action, too. We need to really invest in our families more and do what is right. Torah; teshuvah; mitzvos and not worry about what is unpopular when it is right with Hashem.

I pray that Israel is spying on these Nukes for Hitler talks between the Hamans in Persia and the Rainbow Nazi in the White House. Israel would be remiss if it simply depended on what the French are telling them about these insidious discussions. But alas, the Popularity god beckons. Liberal Jews in the US are having their popularity tarnished amongst their Liberal gentile friends. So that is Israel's unforgivable sin here. nothing else.

Just a reminder. Daylight Savings time begins in Israel this coming Thursday evening when we Spring forward one hour.

EU to Pressure Israel Over Negotiations

A leaked European Union report lists suggestions on how to pressure Israel into returning to negotiations with Palestinian leaders. The EU member states have not yet approved the report but are expected to do so soon. According to an inside source, European diplomats feel the need to make a strong response to Prime Minister Netanyahu's remarks that he would not oversee the creation of a Palestinian state.

A significant number of the recommendations focus on turning eastern Jerusalem into a Palestinian capital. While the report encourages Muslim countries to recognize the Jewish and Christian connections to Jerusalem, it also insists on maintaining the status quo regarding the Temple Mount. A7
