2nd Temple fell during Jewish Lunar Eclipses

The 2nd Jewish Temple fell on the 9th of Av in 70 AD during Lunar Eclipses occuring on the Passover and Feast of Tabernacles.

 The Second Temple was an important Jewish Holy Temple which stood on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem during the Second Temple period, between 516 BCE and 70 CE. It replaced the First Temple which was destroyed in 586 BCE, when the Jewish nation was exiled to Babylon. Jewish eschatology includes a belief that the Second Temple will in turn be replaced by a future Third Temple
