I would agree that that lunar events were recognized and perhaps even to some refined extent predicted by quite early times, but I don't see the connection between any of these and the color red. Surely sunrises and sunsets can be redder in hue than any lunar eclipse.

I believe the usual explanation for the red crown is the red earth of the region. I'm not convinced of this, myself, however. I would think the red crown might have more to do with the symbolism behind the red cloth so often mentioned in the PT's, although I don't know what the accepted wisdom is about the symbolism behind the red cloth. Blood (warfare), perhaps?

An interesting article by Belmonte is related to this topic - ASTRONOMY, ARCHITECTURE AND SYMBOLISM: THE GLOBAL PROJECT OF SNEFERU AT DAHSHUR. It used to be available for free online, but I couldn't find a free version just now with a quick search. It should be out there somewhere, though.

If you do more research on the red issue, please let us know what you find. Thanks. - L
