Is there a word like moonset ? Or perhaps moondown ? Strangely, there isn’t .
This thought occurred to me when I captured this moon this Sunday past . I think I’m some parts of the world it was a blood moon that was eclipsed. But in my sky it was full and eclipsed by the clouds!
Language rules for opposites are very funny. In many Indian languages the word is negated by prefixing the word with the consonant ‘a’. Thus a word like success ( safal) becomes unsuccessful or asafal .
While teaching Anna Shetty opposites , I asked her as a 7 year old what the opposite of andhera ( darkness) was. She unblinkingly replied Andheri ( a suburb of metropolitan Mumbai! )
I hope this brought a smile to your face .
And if any of you know it, do tell me the opposite of moonrise.
