Lunar Eclipse on Dec 21, 2010

It was another beautiful clear night this evening and my wife happened to notice the moon start to change color.  She called to me and pointed out the moon and said it looks like an eclipse is happening.  We both had read over the weekend about an upcoming lunar eclipse, but I thought we had missed it on Saipan or that it was only in North America.  Lucky for us, and thanks to my wife's keen observation, we got to witness the total Lunar Eclipse of 2010.  It was amazing seeing the moon turn orange on a clear starry night on Saipan.  Another memory captured and another reason I Luv Saipan!

The Stars Come Out At Night

Back on the Mainland U.S., I lived in cities where it was hard to see all the stars in the night sky.  The only time I was able to see the stars was when I made a trip to the mountains.  Here on Saipan, on almost every night, one can gaze upward and see the millions of stars in the sky.  And all one needs to do is walk outside of their home and look up.  Saipan's starry nights, it's just another reason why I Luv Saipan.

The video and photos are taken from my backyard.  It'll give you an idea of what you see in the starry nights of Saipan.
