Hollywood turned their gaze skyward early in the morning of April 15, as a rare lunar eclipse caused the moon to take on a reddish hue. As the aptly named blood moon crossed the night sky, stars from Bella to Katy to Ariana Grande tweeted their fascination and personal pics, along with some pretty hilarious jokes.
Who knew celebrities were so into astronomy!? Hollywood was definitely swept up in blood moon madness late on April 14 and into the morning of April 15, as a lunar eclipse cast a shadow on the moon, briefly giving it a haunting but cool red shade between 2 and 4:30 a.m. ET. The fascinating natural event had everyone entranced, from Katy Perry to Ariana Grande, while other celebs like Bella Thorne got all biblical on us!

Check out all the stars who went mental over the blood moon!
To clarify, Bella’s “JOEL” caption is referring to the Book of Joel in the Bible, which predicts the apocalypse in a curious passage: “And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness. And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.” Okay, back to more (less crazy) tweets:

Honestly, we’re pretty amazed that all these stars looked up from their cell phones and into the sky. But looking at all these blood moon pics, it’s not really hard to see why. So what did you think about the lunar eclipse, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
