    Jamani wana JF kuna yeyote alibahatika kuuona mwezi jana??

    Tunaomba kwa yeyote mwenye upeo wa kujua ulikuwa na maana gani atujulishe maana ulikuwa ni si mwezi wa kawaida.

    Ulitoka mwezi ukiwa katikati ya nyota mbili na ulikuwa unang'aa sana.

    Smiley face joins Xmas lights

    A stunning smiley face that appeared in the night skies over Perth last night made the first street light displays of the Christmas season extra special.


    Just after nightfall, Venus (left), Jupiter (right) and a three-day-old crescent Moon appeared as a big smile above the western horizon.

    About that time, dozens of cars descended upon the northern Perth suburb of Connolly to cruise through suburban Prairie Dunes which has become locally famous for its Christmas light displays.

    "It was the first night our street's Christmas lights get turned on and the heavens did as well," light-displaying local Rex Haw said today.

    "It was a talking point for the people walking up and down the street.

    "The skies joined the spirit of the Christmas season by putting on their own light show for the world."

    The unusual star/moon combo could easily be seen with the naked eye and was the talk of Perth today.


    Did you see it? Send your pics


    "It was a very impressive light show," Mr Haw said.

    "I have never seen it before."

    Mr Haw's next door neighbour Nadia Reece was one of only two Prairie Dunes residents who had not yet put up her Christmas lights.

    "We knew that the smiley was going to be out last night and that he would upstage us, so we decided not to bother until later in the week," Ms Reece said.

    If you missed the smiley, you'll have to wait another five years before it shines down on Perth again.

    Hizi nyota mbili yaani Venus na Jupiter hua zinaonekana kua karibu na mwezi kwa sisi hapa duniani lakini ukweli ni kwamba zimepishana kwa umbali mkubwa mno. Kutoka hapa duniani, mwezi uko maili 252,000, Venus iko maili 94 milioni na Jupiter maili 540 milioni! Nyota hizi huwa zinakaribiana mara kwa mara isipokuwa sisi huku duniani hatuoni kwa sababu wakati mwingine zinakuwa karibu na jua na inakuwa vigumu sisi huku duniani kuona. Inatabiriwa kuwa katika mkesha wa mwaka mpya tukio kama hili la jana litatokea tena lakini kwa nyota mbili tu yaani Venus na mwezi.

    Kumbe ni Venus na Jupiter? It was amazing. Mwangaza ulikuwa mkubwa kuliko ilivyo kawaida. Hapa kwetu jinsi nyota zilivyojipanga ilionekana tofauti. Nimejaribu kui-edit hii picha ionekane jinsi nilivyoona hiyo jana.

    Tukio hili litajirudia miaka mitano ijayo. Haijasemwa iwapo itakuwa ni usiku au mchana.

    Thanks guys. I was not aware of the event, and so I missed the smiley. Hope I will be on alert next time when it shines down on Perth again.

    Mimi niilidhani labda ndio ile siku ya mwisho ndio imefika, kwa ukweli sikuwahi kuona kitu kama hicho na niliogopa sana. Nilichofanya ni kuomba dua kwa ajiri yangu na familia yangu na ndugu na jamaa baada ya hapo nikasubiri litakalo tokea.

    Thanks,

    Small point of correction, Venus and Jupiter are planets (sayari) just like the earth orbiting the sun, and not stars (nyota)

    We only have one star in the solar system, the sun, the rest of the bodies are planets, their moons and a bunch of asteroids plus the occassional comet that drive by every once in a number of years.

    The spectacle must have been beautiful I am sure, but nothing to worry about as explained. When you look at the sky you are looking at four dimensional space-time (3d space and one time) projected on two dimensions of space and one of time, giving the apparent appearance that the planets and the moon may collide, this is a mere illusive effect of the said alignment.

    After all, you do not panic when you see cars coming to converge from opposite directions of a road, they are in different lanes.

    What is the percentage of what we see at night are bodies residing outside the boundary of our solar system?
