I didnt know what the big deal was about this total solar eclipse. So the moon was obscuring the sun from our view. So it had some superstition and myth around it. So it was probably not going to be seen anywhere except TV. So it was the last time that we'd see it in our lifetime. Ho Hum.

But then I realised how much we have come ahead as human beings. In earlier times, when man couldnt fathom what the heck was going on, he created myths and prayed like hell that things became brighter. Then science prevailed, and we understood what really did take place.

Now, when we see a solar eclipse, total, diamond ring, or partial, and only on TV, we only see a beautiful, rare sight. Superstition has been "eclipsed".
