Everyone here in Malaysia should have been known and informed regarding the phenomena of lunar eclipse that occurred yesterday, right ?
If so, how many of you did stay all night long just to experience the moments of this unique phenomena?
I was really enthusiast to take a view on that but yet, the weather was bad, really bad last night !
Based on the estimated period, the maximum lunar eclipse occurred at 0400AM, however, it happened one hour earlier than the estimated time, which is approximately at 0325AM.
My younger brother did woke me up at 0330AM, however, we found that it was a torrent rain outside so it was so impossible for us to have a clear view of the moon. However, we still managed to detect the presence of the reddish-orange colour of the sky plus, a very windy condition.
At 0525AM, I woke up again for "sahur" and found that it was still raining heavily. Viewing outside, I found the sky was so dark and there was no sight of the moon even the slightest one. It was just okay, as I had experienced some of the signs of the "supermoon" effects.
Below are some of the pictures taken by those peeps from the observatory tower, the mountain peak, and some amateur pictures.

Do not worry much if you missed this time eclipse, it is predicted that another one of its type will occur one more time at the end of this year, probably the 20th and 21th of December.
P/S : Why must it rain ? T_T. Luckily, I managed to perform the solat sunat gerhana bulan for the first time ever in my entire life ! Alhamdulillah .
