Super Blue Blood Moon Cosmic Event

The beginning of 2018 ushered in a historical cosmic event, that had everyone’s eyes glued to the sky: “The Lunar Trifecta”.

The first major celestial event was a triple treat. On Wednesday, 31st January evening, stargazers in some parts of the world were treated to what was dubbed a super blue blood moon. The last time this astronomical phenomenon took place was in 1866!

The opportunity to witness this phenomenon at Pathways World School Aravali was made open to the larger community from the top of the Primary School Building -Panini.The students gathered on the rooftop awaiting the arrival rising of the moon. However, before the students could view the moon, they witnessed the day signing off with a magnificent sunset. The students were mesmerized at the that the natural world has to offer them, instead of the regular pixelated world of their laptops and IPods.

The viewing gallery on the terrace was one of the best locations on this ridge, beating the city lights and haze. The event was preceded by a technical briefing on what this phenomenon was all about – and was led by members of the Dept. of Science.

sSome students were given the exclusive permission to observe the full moon and capture it. These students spectated the true beauty of the moon as it exited the penumbra.

In conclusion, one felt truly blessed to have had the chance to observe this momentous occasion. The next time the Science Dept. has .to organize such an event for all the boarders, will be ……well after 37 years!
