SMILEY IN THE SKY! (DECEMBER 1,2008)

Posted by queenmadison

It is rather odd to see a smiley in the sky. But I have witness the most fascinating peak of the moon forming together with Venus and Jupiter a smiley in the dark sky. It was 6:30pm Manila Time when me and my husband decided to have a dinner outside. And my daughter who was stargazing pointed the sky and said; "Mama! There's a coca cola sign in the sky!"(which btw, coca cola is famous with its smiley cap here in the Philippines) I looked up and there it is! A smiley.

This happened once in a blue moon. (well, actually it isn't blue moon!) But this doesn't happen on everyday basis you know! So we took the moment to stare at it while it last. Though I haven't got the chance to take a picture of it of video tape it, a friend of mine from Australia sent me a copy of what he recorded on his mobile phone. Gave a lil music on it and wah-lah! A miracle...of the Moon. Take time to watch it it's really cool!

I saw it last night, it was great, but in my part of the world it was more like a frown. The planets were below the moon.

@ valdese blogger: yes you were right. dec 2-3 was the moon's frown! I saw it too. But smile occurred dec 1.
I don't know if there will be any smiles but the astronomers says dec 31 would be another smile.

That's interesting. I read about this in Yahoo last week and was looking forward to this rare incidence of the moon, Venus and Jupiter being together in the sky. But I have only seen Venus and Jupiter without the crescent moon.

Definitely cool! Isn't it neat that your daughter is the one who noticed it first?
