The lunar eclipse of Venus
Hello Jo and Everyone,
Thank you Jo! First, I would like to say that, I learn a lot from the way you write. I sometimes can't explain things in detail.This time I've tried to follow in your steps in writing. I will do some more exercises on the grammar points you’ve explained.
It's interesting that tomorrow we are going to experience the longest day of the year. I’m surely going to see the sun rise as I’m up around 4.40 a.m. for prayers, and the best thing is that my room’s window is in the east direction, so I can enjoy every single moment of the sun rise. It might sound quite early but I take half an hour’s sleep after prayers which I will not do for tomorrow. Asia is also in the northern hemisphere except Indonesia which is primarily in the southern hemisphere. As about celebrating the Summer Solstice, there is nothing much about it. It’s just that we get to know about it in the newspaper and on TV. Here it is still a bit light around 8.00 p.m. at night, and at 9.00 p.m. you can say that the sky is dark.
I would also like to share something with you all. It is that, on June 18th we saw the lunar eclipse of Venus. At around 7.40 p.m. or a bit before the planet Venus positioned towards the moon in such a way as “a little ball in the bowl” (just like the moon and the star in the flag of Pakistan). At around 9.00 p.m. it was pointing just below the moon (the round outer lining of the moon) . Both the views were beautiful. Since it was a third day of the new lunar month; the moon was crescent. I must say it was a beautiful evening.
