The moon was painted red by God, 1870.

From Kauai.

Pertaining to the lunar eclipse. On the 17th of January, at 2:25 and 35 seconds in the morning, one body affected another body in the heavens, and its color turned strange, and we adults and children here in Lihue witnessed it; and here is my bit of humor, someone said: “The moon has been eaten by God.” And another said, “The moon was painted red with red paint by God.” And there was a lot of new things spoken of on that  night, but I cannot carry on about that.

[This article and another was written under the heading “From Kauai,” by S. K. Kahookalaopio of Lihue, Kauai, on January 19, 1870.]

(Kuokoa, 1/29/1870, p. 4)

Mai Kauai mai.

Ka Nupepa Kuokoa, Buke IX, Helu 5, Aoao 4. Ianuari 29, 1870.
