Whee! Doing a stunt!

Hello, I blog!

I write with no particular theme in mind, because I am random like that.

Total Lunar Eclipse from Singapore

There’s currently a lunar eclipse going in Singapore. (In fact, we’re still in total eclipse at the moment. Act fast, though – the moon will start to peek out in about 10 minutes time.)

All my previous attempts at lunar eclipse-geeking was thwarted by thick cloud covers, so I stayed up late today to catch this one.

Tonight, the sky wasn’t very welcoming. Lightning was flashing in the distance, but (thankfully) the cloud cover was relatively mild.

Moon captures between 2.27am to 2.56am.

The clouds thickened at one point, scattering light from the moon so badly that I had to abandon attempts at photo-taking for a bit (hence the blurriness of the last few pictures). Although it lightened again just in time for the final phases before totality.

Approaching totality at 3.26am.

I can now go to bed satisfied.
