The Bakunawa is a creature from Philippine mythology, depicted as a huge sea serpent or a dragon that causes eclipses.
According to the myth, it is an enemy of Bathala, the supreme deity of Philippine mythology. It is said that the Bakunawa rises from the ocean and swallows the moon. To stop the Bakunawa from completely swallowing the moon, the natives go out with pots and pans, and make noise to make the Bakunawa spit the moon back into the sky.
