I don't know much about the moon or any kind of eclipses (Eclipsi?) in general, but there is an historical event with the moon happening in Philly on Friday and it should definitely be recognized. First I'll give you the details of the event, then I'll tell you why I'm terrified of it.
At 2am on Friday, as long as the weather permits, we'll be able to see the longest partial eclipse in 580 years. This event isn't supposed to happen again until the year 2669 so it's going to be a big deal for moon and shadow lovers.
Now, I'm scared to death of this event. Why? Everyone else seems to be so excited about it! You fools. The moon effects the tides and our bodies are made of mostly water so everyone is going to be acting all crazy on Friday! Especially living in Philly I'm not excited to see how weird and most likely mean and irritable every is. In preparation I'm going to meditate and try to come up with a reason to call off work so I don't have to see anyone.
