MAN! Dad and I watched it last night through a telescope and he got some interesting pictures. As stated before, my pop and I do this kinda thing
occassionally, as he gets bored in his retirement and I get bored in... well... everyday life. I learned some awesome things.
The moon cannot be found in the night sky if you are laying face-down in a tomato garden. This unique positioning can be achieved using a single
fifth of Southern Comfort.
When tied to a chair with Duct Tape, you can still fall out.
When taking pictures of the moon, remember to turn the camera on if it is a Digital SLR. Being able to see the moon with your eyes and not through
the camera does NOT signify the presence of a black hole between the viewfinder and the lens. If properly drunk you can convince at 55 year old that
this has happened.
The moon is a tiny, non-combustible star. Thank you for that jewel, Dad. (Yes, he participates here, too.)
If you are set up in the street and the moon is MUCH lower than it should be, and you see two of them, you've had too much to drink. If those moons
approach you, re-examine what exactly you were drinking. If those moons swerve around you, you were nearly hit by a car and must go to bed
immediately for safety reasons.
Luckily he lives in a small neighborhood where everyone knows everyone. We weren't in any immediate danger, but I highly advise you to check your
limit before you stargaze. I'm sure we could have seen something epic. As always, be safe while you are denying ignorance. If that is what you are
doing. I don't think that Dad and I were denying ignorance. But we had a lot of fun!
