Interesting Tid bit of info from Down under
On our national news here tonight Sunday 5th: Australian Airforce in Iraq have not as yet been given the go ahead from Iraq to join the coalition air strikes against IS. They do expect to get this from The GOI byas early as tomorrow and be striking same day. So this is telling me that the GOI are indeed busy working through EID.

Tetrad Red Blood Moon Wed. Oct 8, 2014
Blood moon returns, and this time it's bigger
CNN iReport By Ben Brumfield, CNN
A lunar eclipse will turn the moon a burnt reddish orange
This blood moon will be the size of a super moon, 5.3% larger than the last blood moon
It will be the second in a sequence of four -- called a tetrad
Tetrads can be rare; for a 300-year stretch, there were none
(CNN) -- Blood moon, Act II, opens soon in the heavens near you. And it will be bigger than Act I.
If you live in the western half of the United States, you'll have a front-row seat on a lunar eclipse that will turn the moon a burnt reddish orange for about an hour Wednesday, October 8, creating the second blood moon in relatively short succession.
The full eclipse will start at 6:25 a.m. ET, NASA says, and last until 7:24 a.m. ET.
Because it happens right after the perigee, the closest point to Earth in the moon's orbit, this blood moon will be nearly the size of a super moon -- appearing 5.3% larger than the previous blood moon on April 15.
It will be the second in a sequence of four -- called a tetrad -- that are occurring in roughly six-month intervals. The next one will appear on April 4, 2015, and the last one on September 28, 2015.
The brilliant hue comes from the edges of the sun peeking out around the periphery of the Earth through its atmosphere in a global sunset shining on the moon, which has to be in just the right position to catch those rays.
Lunar eclipses -- penumbral, partial or total -- occur in random order, NASA says. Getting four total eclipses in a row is like drawing a rare lunar poker hand of four of a kind.
"The most unique thing about the 2014-2015 tetrad is that all of them are visible for all or parts of the U.S.A.," said NASA eclipse expert Fred Espenak.
People in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, for example, will not be able to see Wednesday's blood moon.
In the 21st century, there will be many such tetrads, but look back a few centuries, and you'll find the opposite phenomenon, NASA says.
Before the dawn of the 20th century, there was a 300-year period when there were none, Espenak says. Zero.
That would mean that neither Sir Isaac Newton, Mozart, Queen Anne, George Washington, Napoleon, Abraham Lincoln nor their contemporaries ever had a chance to see such a sequence.
