In Philippine mythology, Haliya the masked goddess, Mayari the one-eyed Goddess of beauty and war, and Bulan the lover of the death god Sidapa were the three surviving moons,The rest were devoured by Bakunawa the sea serpent, who was once a beautiful but vain sea goddess who loved them. Haliya and Bakunawa would fight during eclipses, and during these times, it is said that the people would cry, as it was Bakunawa eating the moons that was causing the eclipse. It was the cries of these people that Haliya would use as her weapons and armor during her battle with Bakunawa.
