"VOODOO CHILE" BABY



Full Lunar eclipse now in progress tonight (10:00 pm Sunday September 27, 2015. From what I understand, the next total eclipse of the Moon or maybe the next 4 Lunar Eclipse sequence will be 33 years from now as this is the final "Blood Moon" of 4 Lunar Eclipses which have occurred approximately a half year apart for each of the 4 most recent Lunar Eclipses. It will be interesting to see the effect of these Lunar Eclipses on Earth life (if any) in the near future.

The "Red Moon" caused by the earth shadow covering the full moon from the shadow caused by the Sun reminds me of the Jimi Hendrix Experience song "Voodoo Chile (or Voodo Child) which are copied right HERE:

"Voodoo Chile"
Well, I'm a voodoo chile
Lord I'm a voodoo chile

Well, the night I was born
Lord I swear the moon turned a fire red
The night I was born
I swear the moon turned a fire red
Well my poor mother cried out "lord, the gypsy was right!"
And I seen her, fell down right dead
(Have mercy)

Well, mountain lions found me there waitin'
And set me on a eagles back
Well, mountain lions found me there,
And set me on a eagles wing
(Its' the eagles wing, baby, what did I say)
He took me past to the outskirts of infinity,
And when he brought me back,
He gave me a venus witch's ring
Hey!
And he said "Fly on, fly on"
Because I'm a voodoo chile, yeah, voodoo chile
Hey!

Well, I make love to you,
And lord knows you'll feel no pain
Say, I make love to you in your sleep,
And lord knows you felt no pain
(Have mercy)
'Cause I'm a million miles away
And at the same time I'm right here in your picture frame
(Yeah! What did I say now)
'Cause I'm a voodoo chile
Lord knows, I'm a voodoo chile
(yeah!)

Well my arrows are made of desire
From far away as Jupiter's sulphur mines
Say my arrows are made of desire, desire
From far away as Jupiter's sulphur mines
(Way down by the Methane Sea, yeah)
I have a humming bird and it hums so loud,
You think you were losing your mind, hmmm...

Well I float in liquid gardens
And Arizona new red sand
(Yeah)
I float in liquid gardens
Way down in Arizona red sand

Well, I taste the honey from a flower named Blue,
Way down in California
And the in New York drowns as we hold hands

'Cause I'm a voodoo chile
Lord knows I'm a voodoo chile       



As we see, the "Voodoo Chile" was born on the night the "Moon turned a fire red".   Me, I always thought the lyric was "I swear the moon turned Hell fire red". Which to me would be just as good of a phrase for the "Red Moon."  Well, sometimes I guess song lyrics are hard to exactly determine; "Louie Louie" by "The Kingsmen" originally by Richard Berry  and the song "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by "Nirvana" come to mind as songs that are hard to know the correct lyrics. 

It was somewhat hard to photograph the Moon I found with my hand held camera as I used the "zoom" feature and also the "flash option" on some photos; But of course the Moon is over a couple hundred thousand miles away so I'm not sure how much the "flash feature helps" when photographing something that far away.
