Many speculations are being made about the super moon - total eclipse combo thats said to happen Sunday evening September 27. Being the fourth lunar eclipse in two years, continuing this tetrad and spreading questions in religious communities. The first three eclipses of this tetrad landed on April 15, 2014 and was on jewish holiday passover, October 8, 2014 landed on Sukkot, April 5, 2015 again on passover, and this last eclipsse falling again on Sukkot. According to evangelical pastor John Hagee, the blood moons are historically linked with a time period "that begins with a tragedy and ends with a triumph for the Jewish people." Hagee prophesied that "the four blood moons points to a world-shaking event." While some may be listening to the prophesies of Hagee, Christians are turning to the bible. "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord comes" from Joel 2:31. Just a moon falling under earths shadow or the rapture?
While many are preparing for the end, you can be enjoying this rare astrological event Sunday evening starting 10:11 pm EDT (7:11 pm PDT) and will last 72 minutes. It will be visible across North and South America, Europe, Africa, and parts of west Asia and Eastern pacific, according to NASA. A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth moves in between the full moon and sun. The moon will be visible although covered by the Earths shadow. The "blood moon" affect is because of the reddish tint the moon gets from an eclipse. But is this tetrad landing on major Jewish holidays just a coincidence or should we get ready for the end of what we know? What do you think? See what BJ and Jamie think!

Will Smith took to Facebook on Friday to wish happy birthday to his wife of nearly 17 years, Jada Pinkett Smith, hitting back at ongoing rumors of an impending divorce.
“I have sung happy birthday to you 20 times and I have bought you 19 birthday presents (I was mad that one year),” he wrote in the post, which has been shared more than 250,000 times since it went up Friday. “I have watched you blow out 693 candles (737 after tonite). I’ve told you ‘I love you’ at least 8,285 times. And of the nearly 3.96 Billion women on the planet—there is only 1 that I want to spend the rest of my life with.”
He began the gushing post with a picture of the two as a young couple, writing, “This was taken at your mom’s house 20 years ago. That’s a long time ago!!!”
