My nephew has completed his PSLE, and like most 12 years old kid, is thoroughly frightened of the dark. Its time for him to learn how to overcome his fears before he start secondary school so we arrange a night camp in Pulau Ubin. The trip was planned with comfort in mind. A hammock so he can sleep between us, barbeques with lots of food, and a short walk in full moon light with bright flashlights.
The rains has started early in November 2012 and December is expected to be just as rainy. We didn’t expect to see much of the eclipse in the poor weather. But heavens was smiling at us and we were treated to a sight of full moon eclipse, with the next one expected in 2014.
We didn’t come prepared with advanced camera gears and long lenses, fortunately my new Nikon V1 point and shoot was just able to capture the enchanting sight.
It was an eye opening trip for the little boy. The sky was lit up with stars with Orion constellation clearly visible.
