Full moon and our obsession with it

Today apparently its another full moon day and I was told that there is a lunar eclipse happening right now. While a periodic planet motion is happening, some astrologers had given 'advise' on how to behave during that time. Some Indian media had picked the advise and had gone to town with the story asking people to avoid eating, travelling, cooking during that time and also to avoid eating any food cooked between 6 PM to 9 PM. To my utter dismay it has been taken all too seriously and at least a few genuinely concerned people asked me to eat early. We already had complicated full moon so much so that we don't work on those days and now to add to that "you shouldn't eat". What a world rather what a moon!

Anyway out of curiosity I stepped out to watch the lunar eclipse in the night and took a picture. Sorry I missed by tripod badly.
