Earlier today upon getting to my workstation, Gepay was asking me if I saw the red moon. I pasued for a few seconds then.. “What moon? red?” Obviously, I was not yet in to my senses, read: wala sa wisyo… ang aga pa kasi.. lol..
Then I peeked at the photo and wow it really was RED.. lol 😛 Lunar Eclipse!
I checked my FB wall and all I can see were posts about the RED moon. Tsk! They had a good view from the 11th floor.
Why didnt I know that this was happening? I watched the news last night.. Hmmm.. Did I?? hehe Sayang! A phenomenon like this is really hard to miss. Whenever I leave for the office, I frequently see the moon from our gate. It’s just this time that I wasn’t able to see it – at kung kelang Lunar Eclipse pa!. Another Tsk! 😛 I was already awake at 3:30AM and I should’ve seen it!.. waaaahh.. It was also visible from eastern Africa, central Asia, the Middle East and Western Australia. We’re lucky many were able to see it in its totality.
Okay, moving on… Lunar Eclipses happen more frequently than Solar Eclipses. And in case some of you are still confused between the two phenomena, Solar is when the Moon gets in between the Earth and the Sun while Lunar takes place when the Earth is in between the Moon and the Sun.
I think I’ll just look after the next one and will make sure that I won’t miss it! 🙂
P.S. Rod, I post a comment in your photo asking to borrow the pic. But it seemed that you’re asleep already dahil effort ang paghihintay sa eclipse na yan.. hindi ko na nahintay ang reply mo.. wehehe 😛 Salamat bro! 🙂
