I was engrossed watching sad news from around the world when Naomi called me from outside. She told me that our alley was unusually dark and quiet. Houses were closed and dark. Hmmm.. I wondered why. Naomi said that she saw neighbors all dressed up and all left at once. Maybe to a party? I really don't know. After moving for about 6 months now, there are still many things happening in our neighborhood that are yet unknown to us. Just the time when you think you know everything, things like this happen.
The darkness outside made me noticed the MOON. Oh, yes! I almost forgot the Supermoon. See the yellow ball among the street lights?
This is how it exactly looked through my naked eye.
Hmmm....did my neighbor go somewhere for moongazing? I checked the paper today and it didn't say anything special about last night phenomenon except the discussion on it's effect. Here's an interesting excerpt from the article I read from the local paper:
Pinyo Pongcharoen, president of the International Astrology Association, is predicting the supermoon will cause social conflict as lunar power tends to make people more unstable.He is also warning people to prepare for natural disasters, especially those involving water.Scientists around the world, however, say such fears are nonsense. Prapee Viraporn, secretary-general of the Thai Astronomical Society, said the phenomenon was normal.
Blue Moon phenomenon.
The Blue Moon was obviously brighter than the Supermoon.
Blue moon on my hand! This was taken outside our yard on the New Year's eve of 2009.
How I wish the world is on my hand so it won't go worse as it is now...but NO! Someone whose hand is far better than mine or anyone in this world...and He says...
"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14
