NASA along with the NSA and the PNB and WTF have conspired and colluded to see how many of us would be looking skywards tonite despite the predicted cloud cover. All the news hype brought us out of our cocoons with telescopes and binoculars just to see for ourselves one of the most uncommon celestial occurances.
Their raw and unGodly intent was to see how many of us actually can afford to own binoculars, or telescopes. With our innocent eyes skyward they have been watching us.
And their watchful eyes see far longer than ours.
