moon-year-day

supermoon in kilome, today it was at its largest (14 Nov 2016)

“The most spectacular supermoon since 1948 will light up the sky, appearing 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than usual.

The event on Monday November 14 – described as “undeniably beautiful” by American space agency Nasa – is the result of the moon coming closer to Earth than it has done for 69 years.

Nothing will match it until the moon makes a similar approach on November 25 2034.” – Daily Telegraph

African Black  Eagles of Kilome

souring over us probably looking out for ‘hyrax’ which we had just seen sunbathing, it soon attracts the attention of other birds of prey(raptors) in the vicinity. An alarm call is sounded by one and they all come together – buzzards and falcons.

The Black Eagle quickly makes a turn, flapping its wide wings (about 2 meters wide) and heads straight into its adversaries. They quickly scatter as it takes advantage to disappear over the hills with the other raptors in hot pursuit…

*watch a 3 minute BBC clip how this birds hunt: 

Gooood Morning!
