You Don't Need Special Glasses To Read These Very Funny Eclipse Tweets

By Jaime Lutz

It's difficult to understand why human beings are so fascinated with solar eclipses. Yes, it is a natural anomaly that is beautiful in its own way. You've got the moon covering the sun. You've got darkness out of nowhere when it's supposed to be light. You've got a bunch of children looking at it with these little pinhole glasses for the sake of science...or something. Good times for everyone involved but it doesn't really make much sense, now does it?

The Great American Eclipse is happening NOW, people (or it already happened. I don't know when you're reading this!). And the great thing about this eclipse is that while in the past, people had to just go "wow" at how beautiful it all is, now we can livetweet the eclipse for all our friends, for it is 2017 and America is already great.
