Biggest Full Moon of the Year

Biggest Full Moon of the Year

No, you can not see Neil Armstrong's footprint. But go ahead and look: The full Moon of Dec. 12th is the biggest and brightest full Moon of the year.

It's no illusion. Some full Moons are genuinely larger than others and this Friday's is a whopper. Why? The Moon's orbit is an ellipse with one side 50,000 km closer to Earth than the other: diagram. In the language of astronomy, the two extremes are called "apogee" (far away) and "perigee" (nearby). On Dec. 12th, the Moon becomes full a scant 4 hours after reaching perigee, making it 14% bigger and 30% brighter than lesser full Moons we've seen earlier in 2008.

A perigee Moon brings with it extra-high "perigean tides," but this is nothing to worry about, according to NOAA. In most places, lunar gravity at perigee pulls tide waters only a few centimeters (an inch or so) higher than usual. Local geography can amplify the effect to about 15 centimeters (six inches)--not exactly a great flood.

The best time to look is when the Moon is near the horizon. That is when illusion mixes with reality to produce a truly stunning view. For reasons not fully understood by astronomers or psychologists, low-hanging Moons look unnaturally large when they beam through trees, buildings and other foreground objects. On Friday, why not let the "Moon illusion" amplify a full Moon that's extra-big to begin with? The swollen orb rising in the east at sunset may seem so nearby, you can almost reach out and touch it.

A fun experiment: Take a friend outside on Friday evening and ask if they notice anything unusual. Is the Moon big and bright enough to impress the unwary? Explain perigee later....

Congratulations Manny Pacquiao!

You're truly a pacman! The Philippine government must put your face on the two hundred peso bill in replacement of Diosdado Macapagal. Indeed, you're now one of the Philippine's wonders. The MEXICUTIONER! Im wondering who will be your next MEXICAN victim, hahaha. Juan Manuel Marquez is boastfully telling the people the he can beat pacman if he will be given the chance for a rematch.....IN YOUR DREAMS, hahaha. JUST WATCH YOUR PREVIOUS MATCH with MANNY, and remember the pain of  being knocked down ...not just once but thrice .....lol. 

Thanks Manny! You have boosted again the Spirit of the Filipino!

Two zero zero eight

We still have 26 days left before we welcome the next year but I have decided to post my review for 2008; I really have to, the next coming weeks will gonna be hectic and exhausting; besides, i have to finish my set of goals and my gameplans for 2009. 2009. Gosh. Sounds like the end of the world for many financial analysts huh? We have to prepare! We must! Trust me, list your goals and plans so that you'll be focused. And have a good relationship with God.....everything's going to be all right!

2008. Year of new beginning according to a prophetess; a year of circumscision of the heart... yeah, she was right. 2008.Year of the rat according to the Chinese feng shui experts...8-8-8... Beijing Olympics, Milk Scandal, Sichuan earthquake, Inflations, recessions...oh well, the year isn't lucky for them...............but me,Im not! In contrast, I am blessed, blessed beyond my expectations. There's a big different between a blessed and lucky.

My 2008.
The LORD is good! He made 2008 a better year for me, and Im sure He has lots of good plans for me in the next comings years.He allowed me to go to many situations to learn new things. He has sent me to deserts yet He became my compass that guided me to my journey called life. God provides.

Hellos, goodbyes and see you in eternity....
The year was a year of hellos and goodbyes. Met new friends.Lost old friends and just new. Others...remain....seasonal....and even left this planet. Well, that is part of life....the only constant on this earth is CHANGE.

Blogging,social networking and book reading.....

Thanks to the technology. 2008 is a year where I started blogging seriously, it is the year that I realized that there's a world outside Friendster. Facebook. Multiply. Facebook. Facebook... Facebook is really addicting....mobwars, tower bloxx, speed racing, my city, yo ville. Thanks FACEBOOK. Haha.
The things that  I have observed about the beijing olympics opening ceremony were even used in a news (web) article in australia (http://www.news.com.au/dailytelegraph/story/0,22049,24159960-5016818,00.html). Not bad for an amateur blogger. 

Event of 2008
Best
The best event of 2008 goes to no other than the Hillsong United Worship Concert in Manila. The experience....it was a blast! The period where I ( the street team) was selling tickets was whewww,really hard and strenght, time, patience consuming. I remember there was a period where I received inquiry text messages every other seconds about the concert...every other seconds. Overwhelmed by the inquiries, I decided to turned my cell phone that day.Extraordinary. 
The reward.... priceless! Two days and two nights at Shang-rila Edsa Plaza with the street team. The I heart shirt. Buffet breakfast at THE HEAT SHANGRILA. Buffet lunch THE HEAT SHANGRILA again, but now with the Hillsong United Team. Photo op with the Hillsong United Team and the General Manager of Shang-rila Edsa Plaza. Countless picture takings with HSU at araneta coliseum. The Back stage pass. Highly favoured by the LORD.  


Worst....

Never mind. No time to recall the bad memories of 2008. Good things are still coming on my way. No reason to store bad memories. 


Lessons from 2008

Give. Give.  Give, so that you'll be blessed more. Dedicate the first fruits of whatever you have to God. Stop complaining. Act before react. Dont make life miserable. Worship in time of troubles. Think of God...always. 


Hopes for 2009
Im hoping the 2009 will be better than past years. I hope that i will be able to achieve all my goals, plans and dreams for the year 2009. I hope that there is another HSU concert for 2009.i pray that our nation will not get affected by the global recession. I wish I could meet Brooke Fraser in person.I am hoping that all good things will come to pass, in Jesus name.  I am offering the year  2009 to God. Maktub!

TWILIGHT

After attending a choir practice last saturday, i decided to watch a movie at festival mall coz i had nothing to do after the practice. I watched the movie "Twilight". Im not a fan of Stephenie meyer, but I was just curious about the movie "twilight" because the book is a world best seller .I'm familiar with Stephenie Meyer's series of books but only for the titles and book covers; no idea what Stephenie's writing all about. ..... 

..... yun pala yung story ng twilight.....love story between a human and a "vegetarian" type blood sucker.It is the latest romantic movie I've watched in a cinema after step up. I cannot compare the movie with the book coz i havent read the novel;Im sure many bookworms will give negative opinions about this movie. As always, the book is better than the movie"....Harry potter for example and khaled hosseini's "the Kite runner".

here is a list of the things I've noticed and observed about the movie TWILIGHT

1.The abilities of the Cullens are cool (except for sucking blood).
2. There are some scenes in the movie that Edward Cullen's face looked like an espasol.
3. Kristen Stewart is beautiful.
4. Philippine flag looks so good in the movie. Mabuhay ang' Pinas!
5. Hindi ba tinatablan ng bawang or ng holy water ang mga Cullens?
6. Walang budget ang movie para sa mga "vampire's teeth" hehehe.
