How many moons does the earth have?

For years, we have been taught there is one moon circling the earth that we see most clear nights, brightly shining in the sky. But there are times when the earth has more than one moon, and we are currently in one of those phases. Early last year (Feb 19, 2020), astronomers caught sight of a small asteroid, called 2020 CD3, that had been caught in the earth’s gravitational pull and is dutifully circling our earth. It takes about 47 days for the small car-sized asteroid to circumvent earth. Astronomers suspect it showed up about three years ago. At some point, it will probably veer off and continue its travels through the universe. And it is not the first time this has happened.

Since Blood moons in themselves are not unusual, it is their appearance along with several other events such as a solar eclipse, stars falling from the sky and earthquakes that will make them unique. According to the Apostle John one particular Blood moon will mark the angelic opening of the sixth sea, that can be best described as a time of terror on the earth. But apparently the moon hasn’t escaped the attention of the European Space Agency (ESA) and envisions it as a part of a new utopia. An artist working with ESA’s Advanced Concept Team recently came up with a conceptual drawing of a building on earth’s celestial neighbor that he describes as a “Moon Temple.” Jorge Manes Rubio envisions it as part of a lunar base that is in the planning stages at the space agency.
