Kinda cool, I guess.
A lunar eclipse is going on right over my head this very second.
They don't come around all that often, but they're nowhere nearly as rare as total solar eclipses.
You remember some of 'em. I recall looking at the partial one on the night of May 19-20, 1994, with my Dad, through his binoculars.
I guess the reason we like to watch them is for the same reason that we like to watch dawns and sunsets. There aren't many naturally-occuring celestial incidents that we can view with the naked eye, that we can watch happen over the course of minutes. Not as fast a half-hour sit-com, perhaps, but about as quick as a season finale 2 hour episode.
What would the druids think of our current attention spans?
