image for Eclipse Brings Out Scientists' Sense of Humor Again
"I totally pwned it sux0rz!" jokes a playful scientist

Mount Palomar, California (IPP) - Scientists observing last night's lunar eclipse once again showed the world that they have a sense of humor despite the serious nature of their work in the world's largest mountain top astronomy campus.

During the previous lunar eclipse scientists stuck their hands and fingers into the air and cast animal and other shadowy figures onto the surface of the moon visible above the Earth's umbra. The sun's light rays catch the hand puppet shadows and project them against the lunar surface at the speed of light.

This year the astronomers put on Mouse-ka-teer hats and made it seem as though Mickey himself was lurking near the moon. It was a humorous site for eclipse watchers across the western hemisphere.
