Readers, I had a wonderful experience tonight. Guess what? I watched the most spectacular Supermoon of 2021 with the help of binoculars. I went to my house roof where I saw the Supermoon clearly with binoculars. It was a fascinating time to watch the moon.
For the first time, I saw the inner structures of the moon and it was like someone did a pencil-sketching 3D drawing of the moon. Another aspect which puzzled me that where the moon light came and shined the space ambiance.
I saw in the news that tonight is the first lunar eclipse of 2021 occurring during the early hours of Wednesday. Also called ‘Blood Moon’ as the moon appears slightly reddish-orange and tonight’s moon is very close to the Earth.
It appears in the news that tonight a lunar eclipse, and a blood moon and supermoon all occur at the same time.
Sky-gazers enjoy moon-watching because I enjoyed it a lot and am stunned by the beauty and wonders of space.
