Dear Urban Astronomer
I am pregnant, and am worried that all these Blood Moons are harming my baby. I have asked around in my community, but everybody has their own scary story about what will happen to my baby if I go outdoors during the blood moon. Please let me know what precautions I must take.
Okay so nobody actually mailed this question to me. But at the time of writing, my wife is pregnant and spends a lot of time online in pregnancy forums and facebook groups and she sees people asking it all the time, which seems odd since neither my wife nor I had ever heard of such fears. So what's it all about?
