Although I missed the lunar eclipse last night, my grandpa told me a funny story about an eclipse he saw in college, so I thought I'd share it here.

One dark night as he was walking across the campus, he happened to look up at the moon, which just happened to be in the middle of an eclipse. My grandpa was really excited because he hadn't known there was going to be an eclipse that night. Just then, some guy approached him on the sidewalk. Of course my grandpa wanted to share, so he pointed skyward and said excitedly, "look at that!"

The man stared at my grandpa with a disgusted look on his face and then continued to walk by. When my grandpa asked him again to "look up!" the guy snorted and said, "oh please, I'm not going to fall for THAT one!"
