Full Moon



I was leaving Kuala Kangsar at about 9 last night when Kak Nor looked up the sky and told me how full and bright the moon was.
We all looked up. Heavenly.
When was the last time I saw a full moon, I couldn't remember. Kak Nor then pointed up to the northern star.
"Is that really the northern star?," I asked.
Was it me or was the night a little bright.
On the drive back to KL -- like children Mia and I said excitedly, "the moon is following us".
Teenagers Shaira and Liyana, retorted: "yeah, right..."
But the moon followed me. I could see it right up there. From my doorstep.



Read about yesterday's full moon here.

I did something on yahoo.com about the moon being the lowest on the horizon this weekend compared to the whole year.
That it will be a time of illusion and mind play for those observing and who think they are being observed closely by the moon.

I saw a North Star 10 years ago and has not lost sight of it ever since ... Ain't that something.

Oh.. I heard about that full moon but did not check it out last night. The sun goes down about 10pm here (in Germany) these days. By that time I am indoors, with shutters down and blogging. :)
Got to make an effort to check it out tonight (still the weekend, right?) :D

You people are not very observant are you? If you had looked carefully you would have seen me playing golf there.

To be on a more serious note. I love to just look at the moon. I don't know why but there is some kind of a pull that it has on me. No I don't know much about it other than the usual it has no gravity stuff but I just get a kick looking at it. I hope that doesn't make me a 'gila punya olang'.

no worries cikgu. i did the same too last night. i wanted to get a clearer view that i turned the bed-side lamp as well as the tele off. it didnt help much but i was in awe at its brightness that i stared for quite some time.

and no, didnt see any smiley face la pn nuraina.

err..witch on broom would be an interesting sighting.
