 This coming Saturday(4-4-15) is number 3 out of 4 of the Blood Moon Tetrad (Tetrad meaning four) in the 2014-1015 season.  According to NASA, the shadow of Earth will completely cover the Moon which causes it to turn red. In Colorado where I live we will be able to see the “totality” beginning at 5:58 AM Mountain Time.  If you live on the East Coast you won’t be as lucky and will only see a partial ‘occulting’ or hiding of the Moon. Early-rising observers all over the United States should be able to see at least the partial phases of the April 4 lunar eclipse just before the sun rises, if weather permits. People on the West Coast will have the chance to see the moon turn an eerie shade of red during totality, which should begin at about 7:58 a.m. EDT (1158 GMT,…

## Pythagorean Triples You’ve heard of the Pythagorean Theorem. Looking at a triangle, A squared plus B squared equals C squared. But this doesn’t work with all triangles, only specific triangles with specific lengths. The first set of numbers that work for this formula are 3,4 and 5. (3squared=9, 4squared=16, and 5squared equals 25). 9+16=25. Check! This works, so this is the first “Pythagorean Triple”. The second triangle that satisfies the equation is based on lengths of 5,12, and 13. Now if you divide the side of 5, into 2 and 3(The Perfect Fifth in Music Theory), and draw a line as shown(dotted line), it’s length is the amount of full moons in one solar year.(12.369) I wonder if the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank was thinking of the Moon and the second Pythagorean Triple when they came up with the measurements of the US dollar.(The FED…
