“What happened centuries past…..did entire villages go blind in the path of an eclipse?”

I have been pondering a question…….before the days of eclipse glasses…..in centuries past……….did entire villages go blind in the pathway of an eclipse?????????
Think about it……when the skies grew dark, wouldn’t it have been a logical action to look up……(maybe after you ran and hid for a few moments)……..
Did these people all lose their sight…….Was an oral tradition of eclipse warning handed down through generations after the horror of the Gods causing blindness as punishment occurred ………..
Somewhere, someone had to put two and two together and realize the result was damage to one’s vision………
It is incredible to me how astronomers of centuries past were so accurate in their predictions of these events……..
Had it not been for this accuracy, Columbus might have met a much different fate……He convinced the natives of his “godliness” by predicting the dark skies of an eclipse……Who would dare touch a God who could make the light leave the world?
Please be careful with those homemade cardboard box get ups…..especially if you have a child using one.
And keep your pets inside ……..my Bud especially likes to look up in the trees, searching for squirrels……the light can damage their retinas too……….
Wouldn’t it be nice if some real Messiah came down to enlighten the world during this dark moment of moon passage……..
I’m not expecting one……..but it would be nice, wouldn’t it……….
I just hope a very limited number of “loonies” come out……..and I am expecting them   😦
Be safe, and still be in awe……….
We no longer have to hide in fear………but we do have to respect the wonders and dangers of the Universe………..
