I was in awe when I saw this. Words won’t suffice to describe its beauty.

This is the first time I saw a rainbow in Europe and the most beautiful rainbow I’ve seen in my life!

God is good. :)

Heads up for Filipino astronomy enthusiasts: From Aug 18 to 20, 2014, Venus and Jupiter will appear very close to each other (less than the width of a full moon) in the sky around 5:30am. Both planets can be viewed in the telescope at the same time on Aug 18. Look east.

Clear skies!

My boyfriend celebrated his birthday by painting and drinking at Sip and Gogh. He painted Aurora Borealis while I painted Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Starry Night, haha! We did this for three hours! It was indeed a challenge but we had a great time! :)

 

Thanks to my sister for recommending Sip and Gogh!

Camelopardalid Meteor Shower Observation 2014

•May 19, 2014 • 2 Comments

 

Announcement from Philippine Astronomical Society (PAS):

From Mr. Edmund Rosales of PAS:

NASA scientists from JPL announced a newly discovered meteor debris left by Comet 209P/Linear, that could produce a meteor shower to a storm coming from the constellation Camelopardis or Giraffe this coming May 23 and 24.

A meteor shower produces several to hundreds of meteors per hour while a meteor storm produces thousands of meteors. So far, the only meteor shower that produces a storm is the Leonids ( Nov. 17-18) every 33 years. The last time it happened was last 2001 were I was able to count 1,786 meteors using my tally counter that night. The next it is expected to happen will be on 2034.

Camelopardis is located near Polaris the north star, so we expect meteors coming from the north.

 

 

Free Telescope Viewing of the Moon, Saturn, and Jupiter at SM Southmall

•May 17, 2014 • Leave a Comment

Together with fellow astronomy enthusiasts, I got a chance to share to the public views of Jupiter and Saturn through my 8″ dobsonian telescope. The crowd was so eager to see the planets despite the long lines. Their enthusiasm and curiosity was indeed amazing! This is why I love astronomy so much. It’s the only science I know that lets people from all walks of life appreciate the wonders of the universe.

Thank you Mr Gary Andreassen for organizing this event! :)

To the stars!
