Lunar Eclipse in Japan, 10-12-11
Tonight, on the 10th of December 2011, most of Japanese people are looking up the sky and waiting for the moment. It´s lunar eclipse. In Japanese Gesshoku (月食) and when entire moon hides, it´s called kaiki-gesshoku (皆既月食). Kaiki means completely or totally in this case.
Watching things like eclipse make us wonder where we are, what we are, about the earth, the universe, the outside world. There are so much things we don´t know.
Depending on the shadow, sometimes you can see the Moon in orangy colour.
This photo is taken in Hiroshima (広島).
The lunar eclipse started partly, around at 21:45. The forecast I saw in the morning said it´d be overcast but hey, it was a lucky night. In the most part of Japan, they could see the spectacular of the moon for 50 minutes, although some from western part of Japan were saying that they couldn´t see it.
