Lunar Eclipse was ‘A bit Shit’

Lunar EclipseVery Average Eclipse!

The general consensus of opinion by those who cancelled other engagements to stand outside and watch the moon go a sort of orange colour for a few minutes was that they probably shouldn’t have cancelled.

The Moon takes on a rusty colour when the Earth comes between it and the sun but apart from that it doesn’t do much, and it doesn’t suddenly get dark or anything exciting like that so it is essentially a waste of time.

“If you look at the moon through a glass of orange squash you can achieve pretty much the same effect!” Said rogue astronomer Uranus Izmine who likes to put Choral Hydrate into his martini’s and disappear for a while.
