Today, we decided to go to Marina Barrage to fly kite and to watch the moon eclipse.
The kids love outdoor so much. And they keep on jumping up and down. The found a big bird statue behind.
A lot of people when they come, they will walk up to the roof top.
For us, we walked from the reverse direction, from the Satay by the bay, we will see this green green slope. And surprisingly not many people here. So, we decided to fly our kite here and we setup our picnic here too.
There is a nice view of the MBS and the Singapore Flyer.
Let’s fly kite.
Kay Kay flying the first kite.
The Red Angry Bird kite.
Look closer. This is the one.
Kay Kay just witness a runaway kite. The kite and the handle flew away in front of him.
So, he was a bit scare of loosing his kite.
So what we do is we tie the kite on to his waist.
So, that he can fly the kite even the wind is strong up there.
See… Hands Free flying kite.
Jay Jay will fly the rainbow parachute dog kite.
And up up and away...
Jay no need the kite to tie to his waist.
He is very steady flying the kite.
Hello little friend.
We started our picnic.
Terry & Laurel joined us together with their niece Claris.
She gets to fly a kite too.
Here comes my dinner. Kueh Pai Tee.
OK. The night is coming. Sun has set.
And we are searching for the Moon direction.
There is an app for it.
The kids were playing the Star Tracker App. There were amaze of seeing things that they cannot see.
Later, mommy and Jay Jay setup the telescope.
We will use this Telescope to search for the blood moon.
And we have align the telescope properly towards the east. The moon will rose from the East.
Let’s see if we can see Jupiter or not.
This is the direction the moon will rose from.
Oh… some people are playing the drones. The drones change green and red color. Cool.
Here we get the glimpse of the moon.
Laurel’s camera can see the color. Some how, my camera filtered off all the color.
This is what Laurel’s took from his borrowed camera.
The eclipse has begun to uncover the moon slowly.
They found a way to take photo via telescope.
I am using my Sony super zoom camera. Automatic mode.
Jay Jay was amazed when looking at the viewfinder of my camera,
Moon getting bigger again.
These astro-scientist is trying to take photo thru the telescope eye hole.
Moon getting bigger.
Laurel took the photo and the color is definitely are more real than mine.
Hers is yellow color.
I am still taking lots and lots of photos about this eclipse.
When we reach home, the moon has become round moon.
So round. And that concludes the blood moon day. The full moon back to the full moon again.
