A fabulous installation in Victoria Park gave a major spectacle to the people in Hong Kong. They were greeted with a really gigantic hemisphere in Victoria Park for the Lantern Wonderland 2013 last month. The project, ‘Rising Moon’ was created by local design agency Daydreamers Design for their Mid-Autumn Festical. It is meant to be a celebration for the moon is at its brightest and fullest. They have created a half sphere and while it is atop the river, the other half is a reflection of it. Making it a complete sphere. Very conceptual and very elegant. The designers make use of recycled plastic bottles to construct the moon in an effort to send an environmentally-friendly message to the general public. The structure alone spanned about 65-feet in diameter with its surface covered with 4800 bottles that are lit with LED lights, creating an unique lighting effect.

‘Rising Moon’ was awarded the Gold Award at the Lantern Wonderland Design Competition in May 2013.

Instagram users have a reason to rejoice. NASA has official landed on the Instagram space. Now, if you have been following NASA on almost every other platform, you would have realize they set foot on quite a handful of social media. They had Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and more. Finally, they are on Instagram. I have just went over to their space at Instagram and there’s actually quite a few really amazing pictures. We see earth from moon. The view is definitely breathtaking. The Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE), scheduled to launch, has already gotten four images of the mood. Do check them out. The agency intends to use their account to have images and videos of what they have taken from the moon and space. Im sure NASA has got a ton of totally mind blowing space images to share in their huge archives. Im looking forward to it.

Check out their account here.
