In order to get the best view, one must get the best seat. However, Filipinos may simply look up in the sky this August to see the magic unfold – from the last Supermoon of this year to the number of shooting stars – August is simply the month for astronomy and counting falling stars. Even greater is that users can gaze at them with an unaided eye and capture these masterpieces in glorious detail with the vivo X80 series.
So whether you’re planning to camp out under the blanket of stars or simply enjoy skywatching, here are the celestial events happening in the second week of August that you shouldn’t miss:
August 12: Moon lovers will surely enjoy their view of the moon on the 12th of August as it will be at its closest to Earth and will be larger and brighter than usual. However, this Supermoon will be the third and final Supermoon this year. But don’t fret – the vivo X80 Series got you covered! Equipped with a special ZEISS T* Coating which almost completely eliminates the effect of stray light, you’re sure to capture bright and vivid photos of the full moon. The vivo X80 Pro also sports ZEISS Super Night Camera that allows users to capture the moon in vivid detail and XDR Photo that makes otherwise ordinary images look like HDR images on the phone screen. You won’t have to wait until next year to witness yet again the beauty of a Supermoon, because this vivo’s display technology will surely give you clear and crisp photographs of the sky’s masterpiece.
August 12, 13: Considered one of the best and most spectacular meteor showers to observe, the Perseids Meteor Shower will have its peak on August 12 and the morning of August 13. At its peak, it produces up to 60 bright meteors per hour. However, this can’t-miss celestial event coincides with the Supermoon; thus, only the brightest meteors will likely be visible. But you may wait until between midnight and dawn of August 13 to get a better glimpse of the meteors.
Another workaround is to find dark locations far away from the city lights and skyscrapers to help you see more shooting stars. Often, we are told to focus on seeing the brighter side, but for star gazers, you better set your eyes on the dark areas of the sky this time. And if you’re worried about the quality of your shots due to a limited supply of natural lights, don’t bother doing ‘DIY’ – the vivo X80 Series will do the magic.
Extreme darkness will not be a problem for vivo’s unique V1+ Chip as it allows users to take quality shots despite unfavorable light conditions. This customized chip by vivo also supports Super NightVideo and AI Video Enhancement, giving exceptional images of the meteors – whether in the dark countryside or an unlit open field.
August 14: Perhaps, the universe wants to end the 2nd week of August with a bang because come August 14, another cosmic dish will feast the skygazers’ eyes with Saturn at Opposition. By the end week of August 8, the ringed planet will lie opposite the Sun and at its closest approach to Earth. Saturn will be brighter this August than any time this year which is good news for night owls because the ringed planet (and some of its moons!) will also be up all night long. Not every day do you see Saturn dazzling in the night sky, so make sure to enjoy the view and immortalize the universe’s wonders through photographs.
You won’t be needing any binoculars and professional equipment to see and capture the ringed world’s beauty. Just utilize the vivo X80 Pro’s 5x Optimal Zoom and 60x HyperZoom to give you a closer and more detailed view of Saturn.
Life is indeed filled with masterpieces and the universe always has something beautiful and magical in store for everyone. But the best thing in all these is the opportunity to witness, experience, and capture these masterpieces with a powerful device like the vivo X80 Series.
In the coming days, don’t forget to look up, because there’s always something beautiful above. Make sure to capture all the good ones! Know more about the vivo X80 Series’ power to capture celestial masterpieces through vivo’s official website, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube channels.
