Get the bunker stocked up, we're going to need it.
In the wee hours of September 28th we will experience one of the darkest and brightest moons of the year.
At roughly 2 A.M. the moon will be closer to Earth than normal, causing it to shine an extra bright white and become what is known as a 'Supermoon'. Yes, we know it sounds like a child named it, but that's what we're dealing with.
Anyway, the Supermoon won't last for long, as it will then be eclipsed by 4.30 A.M. when the Earth stands directly between it and the Sun. This is expected to last for about an hour and a half, during which time the sun's rays will bend around the Earth, causing the moon to develop a coppery hue, creating a "Blood Moon".
This will be the fourth Blood Moon in a little over a year, which isn't a good thing if you believe the Christian ministers John Hagee and Mark Blitz, who claim that this is a sign that the world is ending.
Supposedly four Blood Moons, and six full moons in between them, which has actually happened this year, is a sign the apocalypse could be on the way, as was predicted it the Book of Revelation.
Due to the moon's close proximity, its effect on the oceans will be stronger than usual, thus causing floods of biblical proportions.
The only thing is, the UK National Tidal and Sea Level Facility say that even though tides will rise, it'll only be by about and inch, maybe two. Hardly biblical.
Sounds like a load of nonsense to us, but we're stocking up on bottled water and twinkies just in case. And if the four horsemen don't turn up, we'll just have a gawk at the pretty moon and eat some twinkies. Win win.
