Clicking Karwa Chauth Moon

How To Photograph Karwa Chauth Moon So my experiments with photographing moon continue. Just like last year, this year also the Karwa Chauth Moon played spoilsport and defied all predictions by all the astronomy websites. But partly all the haze and dust in the sky was also to be blamed. Both me and the younger one on moon spotting duty, and were constantly coordinating with building security,  Wife jee and various astronomy sites who have predicted moon rise at exactly 20: 22 hours.  I was on rooftop much before that trying to figure out from where Mr. Moon will make [Continue Reading By Clicking Here…]

Pictures of Super Blood Moon

My experience of clicking Super Blood Moon in India Moon is our closest neighbor and satellite.  Moon is also the heavenly body in space where humans traveled to in a space ship, so I guess I can write about Moon on my travel blog 🙂 .

  Pictures of Karwa Chauth Moon So like many years this year also the moon of Karwa Chauth decided to get late and make my dear wife wait more before she could break her fast. Though I am pretty sure all Indians know what Karwa Chauth is, but since desi Traveler gets lots of traffic from US, UK, Europe and Australia  ( though I am not sure it is the desi diasporas in these countries or natives who read desi Traveler )  it would not be wrong to give some gyan about Karwa Chauth. You see in India most [Continue Reading By Clicking Here…]

Once In A Blue Moon!

A few days ago  I was very sad on learning about passing away of Neil Armstrong, the first man on moon before I was even born. Then today I read that today will be a rare phenomenon called blue moon on the funeral service of Neil Armstrong. I actually thought that the moon will be blue in color today, only to later learn that it is more derieved from the saying “ Once in  a blue moon”, which actually means when there is a full moon day twice in a month due to the way the Gregorian calendar is designed.
