Tomorrow the moon will be painted the color of the fire. It will be possible to witness a rare phenomenon, which some argue to herald the “end of the world”.
The astrological phenomenon, which takes place every 500 years, is called “tetrad” and involves four consecutive lunar eclipses, among which there will be six full moons.
