With all the hoopla about the solar eclipse today (and the craziness that is going with it within the USA), I kind of started thinking about something on a random tangent. Once again, I’m totally into the history thing–obviously. Eclipses were traditionally omens of sorts. I know, sometimes bad omens. Which I can kind of understand. I mean…it’s freaky weird today what with the sky suddenly getting darker, but the sun still out. It’s absolutely freaky looking, considering everything. And without the scientific knowledge we now have, I could totally understand how people hundreds of years ago would be totally spooked by the eclipse.
