Ozzy and the Eclipse
I saw this thing on social media, but I was out at the time, viewing it via my phone, and when I sought to save it, it didn’t save. Alas, alas! And yet I remembered the gist of it, thus I can still report on it! So, like, there’s supposed to be this eclipse sometime later this year, which will be visible from all parts of the US. And during this eclipse, Ozzy Osboure is supposed to perform his classic hit “Bark at the Moon.” That’s cool, too. It would be even cooler if he goes all out and puts on the werewolf makeup for the event.
A rigorous and exhausting Internet search (which took me all of maybe ten seconds) revealed the details of the said eclipsing and barking, respectively. The eclipse will occur on August 21st of this year, and will be the first one since 1918 to affect the entire United States. Ozzy’s performance will take place at “Moonstock,” located at De Soto, Illinois, at a location meant to provide the best view of the eclipse. (Note: Do NOT look directly at the sun during the eclipse. It may seem safe, with the sun all blacked out, but the damage from solar radiation to your eyes will actually be increased. You can enjoy the darkness and the weird before and after lighting without looking up, and you can see the eclipsed sun on the news later.) Ozzy is set to begin his song at the exact moment the sun disappears. Does this mean that he’ll wait for total darkness, or start singing as soon as the shadow of the moon appears? I hope Ozzy doesn’t look at the sun to make the determination. He could damage his eyes.
