Has anyone of you guys ever witnessed any natural phenomenon?
It can range from a Solar eclipse to an aurora to even somethign as simple as a constellation.
I for myself have witnessed a Solar and Lunar eclipse, a few constellations and even a Red Moon (I thought that was really beautifull to see) in my life.
I am still willing to wanting to see an aurora though.
I saw the 'full' Solar eclipse back in 2000. I remember we were on a holiday with my family at Lake Balaton, and it happened around 3-4 PM. The Sun disappeared from the sky, everything became dark, it was really exciting. We had special sunglasses to watch the Solar eclipse. I remember we still have the photos we made there, it was really memorable for me.
When one of the planets was barely visible in front of the sun... happened like years ago when I still was in primary school. I heard it would happen again after some hundred years or so. I could see the planet by looking at it through a CD.
Red moon? That sounds epic. I wonder what makes it red... time to find out
-------------------- My blog. I could post stuff now and then
Midnight sun? That sounds awesome. The latest I've seen the sun go down was at 8, while I was in Florida a few weeks earlier, and me and my friends were amazed at why it went down so late. It usually goes down at about 6 here in Hawaii.
Also I've never really bothered to stay up late to watch a Lunar eclipse before, which is pretty much what only happens here.
I almost saw the Northern Lights in Iceland...but then I fell asleep. One day, I am determined to see them. To be fair it was 2am though and that day we had gone up a slightly active volcano as well (actually, I guess it was the previous day technically).
As resident amateur astronomer My knowledge is indefinite
Let's see… I've seen the perseids three times now(woulda been five, but clouds are the bane of my existence in ye olde Englandeshireytowne), 2 Lunar eclipses, and a very terrible look at the transit of Mercury in 2003, if that counts.
