2 Blue Orbs during super blue moon January 31-2018 10.50 pm

Sudah dua kali kamera Panasonic Lumix FH1 yang saya punya menghasilkan foto yang ada penampakan orb (lingkaran) warna biru. Aneh memang, lingkaran bulat ini tak kasat mata, tapi timbul di foto. Lingkaran bulat warna biru ini tampak begitu nyata.

Super Blue Blood Moon Watch

5 Comments

The moon started to be visible around 8.00 PM and it was bright and big. It was in fact a super blue moon, though the colour was more golden to me than blue.

Took few photos with my camera. Not very good images, but they are the best that my camera can take. One photo is the super moon with some plants and cloud visible, also a couple of street lights down below. However there are two mysterious objects, one near the bright moon and another is near the cloud. What are they? Perhaps they are just another trick that a small digital camera is capable to do.

When the eclipse started to happen, the sky was clear with no clouds around. Here in Melbourne area, the eclipse started around 11.00 pm and it was fully covered around 11.40. The longest wait I had ever experience for a lunar eclipse. Now it is 1.15 am, and it has only just started to come out of the shadow. It will be around 2.00 am before it fully out of the shadow. I will not wait, after posting this entry I am going to sleep. Oh yes, the eclipse moon looks quite red, but it has hung high in the sky so the size is much reduced.

Why a super blue blood moon is regarded as rare? Because it is three special occasions that happen all at once.

  • It is a super moon because the moon appears to look larger than usual as it enters the closest distance to earth.
  • It is a blue moon because it is an additional full moon that appears in a subdivision of a year, either third of four full moons in a season, or a second full moon in a month of the common calendar (* Wikipedia). So blue moon is not about the colour. Probably it is related to the saying: “Once in a blue moon” which means a rare occasion.
  • It is a blood moon when the moon will usually look reddish during a total lunar eclipse.

Crying Out to Heaven

Comments Off on Crying Out to Heaven

Dark Sky

They are celebrating, but I am crying my heart out to Heaven.

Dear Lord, forgive my sins and the sins of others. For those who are crossing the line and commit serious transgressions of Your law, done freely and deliberately with a clear understanding of what they are.

No words can express my heavy heart, my deepest sorrow, my worries of what the future might bring to the next generations. Why do I see looming darkness of evils ?

Melbourne Trams – Very Rough Ride

6 Comments

melbourne-cbd-the-tram

Last Saturday, I traveled from Nicholson st. Coburg to Melbourne CBD by tram. It has been so long since the last time I took a tram and I was excited. As a person who lives in outer suburb, I hardly go to the city, especially by taking a public transport.

The fresh look of the tram and the new Myki card system seem to make everything more up to date following the trend of today’s technology. But soon, I was shock to feel how rough and bumpy the tram run. I was almost sent flying to the floor while walking to find an empty seat and the tram had started to move.  Read more

Pameran Better Homes & Gardens

Kemarin seharian pergi ke pameran Better Homes & Gardens bersama Viv dan Cecilia di Convention & Exhibition Centre, Melbourne CBD (Central Business District). Pertama saya pakai mobil pergi kerumah mereka di Coburg yang termasuk inner suburb kota Melbourne. Dari Coburg terus naik tram ke City (kota). Terpaksa saja naik tram karena susah cari tempat parkir di City dan ongkos parkir juga mahal. Baca lebih lanjut

Kalau Kelelahan Nyetir di Australia

2 Comments

Ingat dulu waktu saya masih kecil, waktu alm. papa nyetir mobil keluar kota, sering beliau itu ngantuk. Kalau sudah terlihat kepala mulai terangguk, mama terus mengeluarkan camilan untuk papa untuk menghilangkan ngantuk. Untung dijaman itu ditahun enam puluhan jalanan di daerah Jawa tengah masih cukup kosong. Mama tak bisa nyetir jadi tak bisa bisa gantian nyetirnya. Walau katanya semakin kenyang orang akan semakin ngantuk, tapi nyetir sembari nyamil memang membuat papa saya tidak ngantuk lagi 🙂

Memanfaatkan Cabe Kering

Cabe Kering

Sampai sekarang di Melbourne sini harga cabe segar masih tetap mahal. Cabe rawit (Bird’s Eye Chilli) akhir-akhir ini agak murah, tapi cabe merah tetap lebih mahal. Yang murah melimpah kalau lagi musimnya adalah jenis Capsicum dan Paprika yang rasanya manis dan tidak pedas sama sekali. Bagi mereka yang tidak suka pedas, kalau memasak hidangan Indonesia yang bercabe seperti misalnya sambal goreng dsb tepat sekali, tapi kalau suka pedas hanya dengan capsicum pasti kurang pas.

Ingat dulu di tahun 1983 waktu pertama tiba di negeri kangguru ini, cabe tidak sebanyak seperti sekarang dan harganya jauh lebih mahal lagi.  Baca seterusnya
