I love looking throught my electron microscope at Eclpsi.
Last time was when we had a Lunar Eclipse, when Hayley's Commet passed by around the same spot in the sky. My trusty microscope was there to protect me, both from the spaceship, as well as the harmful smell of that mooncheese...
This was 1996 and my Microscope was just perfect for the matter,
A. It protected my pink eyes from the harsh rays of the moon,
B. Magically by seeing such a small image enlarged, it was like a coreography session of of the Electric Light Orchestra... in live action animation. One could practically see the cells divide.
