Back in the midst of the PAD protests and overtaking the airport, we also witnessed an astrological event, Earthshine, to also be aligned with Venus and Jupiter, making a smiling face. As corny as all the claims of how people feel like smiling when they see it, it’s true. When I saw it, I couldn’t resist admiring and smiling back. Not being a spiritual person by any stretch of the imagination, I couldn’t help feeling like the heaven’s were sending down a reassurance.
Photographing the sky is not a skill I have yet begun to understand. My best photos of the Earth’s Smile are not in any scenic set up. It was hard enough to get a somewhat clear photo of the three celestial objects alone.
