I think a week or so ago there was a Lunar Eclipse. I don't really see what the big deal is about eclipses. You've seen one, you've seen them all right? And is it really that exciting? First of all it takes forever, the conditions have to be almost perfect, no clouds etc, and you have to remember it's even happening. Then what? It's like you can see the phases of the moon in one night instead of over a month? Oh wow, it's a full moon! Oh wow, now it's a crescent moon!Oh wow, now it's a full moon again! But it seems like every time an eclipse happens they always say that it's not going to happen again in our lifetime, or the next one will be 70 years from now. I think I have seen at least four or five since fifth grade with the homemade sunglasses. Not that exciting.
