Look out your window now!!! THE MOON IS RED IN COLOUR!!!
Okay, I know this probably isn’t the first time, but I’ve never seen the moon any colour other than what it’s supposed to be, so it is pretty damn amazing to me!!
I swear this isn’t photoshopped. I didn’t even adjust the brightness and contrast. This is totally wholesale from my camera (after cropping off the edges).
This is the uncropped and size-reduced version to fit into my blog:
The lights below the moon are lights from ships.
When we first discovered it, it was kind of hiding behind some clouds and it looked somewhat smaller, but no less amazing.
It slowly moved out of the clouds.
And then there it stood in full red glory!
Hmm… it’s starting to get more and more orange, heading towards yellow as I’m typing this.
Hurry catch it before it’s gone!
UPDATE — ONE HOUR AFTER DISCOVERY OF RED MOON:
It’s not red anymore. I think the moon was red for only about half an hour or so?
You can see how high it’s gone now. And the colour has reverted to normal.
Oh, well. No armageddon.

You sure that’s a moon…..not UFO?…lol
I heard about the red moon on Twitter but when I headed out to Domus to pay the deposit, it was normal coloured!!
Wahhhhh!!!! Can’t see moon from my location… :(
Red moon? Not blue moon? Damn! No flying pigs!
Oh manz… i didn’t get to see the real red moon I was out with my friend. =(
Oh well, thanks for posting up on that red moon picture is really nice! =D
Congrats. You just saw a lunar eclipse.
This will not happen again until December 2010.
that’s really fascinating! what a pity i missed it!
It was yellow when I noticed it, which probably means more air pollution from Indonesia than End Times from Hell…
No wonder yesterday I suddenly got more power.
Lol I saw the red moon too :)
Hi there, I think it is called a ‘Blood Moon’.
OMG, I’ve never seen one before…and I thought the red moon in Yami no Matsuei (manga/anime) was fictional…
Blood Moon (Enchantment, 2R)
Non-basic lands are mountains.
Armageddon (Sorcery, 3R)
Destroys all lands.
Yep, got difference.
Hmmmm… that should be:
Armageddon (Sorcery, 2W)
OMG… I can’t type today… 3W
Beautiful shots. But if it is Armageddon, then I think you should hurry up and follow your heart…
it is not too late to still become a ninja.
Rachel: You suddenly got more power? In which aspect?? ;)
i didn’t manage to see it!
i’ve never seen such moon before.. where’s this moon?
Oh, well. No armageddon.
LOL. Better luck next time. :)
Jolene: In the sky…..
Mystika!! The red moon is caused by pollutants in the atmosphere that only allows the red-spectrum of light to pass thru.
Look like duck egg yolk, very nice
alot of signs of end of the world….
earthquakes…..great numbers of deaths….disasters….redmoon….sheylara wants to cut hair :D
i have see that too
I didn’t see it ! Damn!!!
When I was working in Bangkok, occassionally, I do see the red sun during sunsets. Its beautiful. But was told that it was due to the polluted air in horizon that filtered off rest of the colour.
Thought lunar eclipses happen pretty often though. Much more than any type of solar eclipse at any rate…
Grats on catching the phenomenon. I caught it I think once, and dismissed it as rain clouds and went to sleep. But that was prob because it was nowhere near this brilliant shade of red.
Goonfather: there.. that one lor..
i saw it too :D
Fwah….. like a slice of salami in the sky.
The moon was having it’s “time of the month” (Pun intended)
It has occurred to me that there is an old saying: Red sky at night, shepherd’s delight. I wonder if it applies to the moon too…
good thing its not only me whi saw it! It was really amazing although i’ve only seen the lower half part of it.
