“Usually I am very careful about accurately reporting when there is or isn’t a lunar eclipse, and unfortunately this time, I was wrong, and it was my brothers testicles hanging over the front of the telescope. Again, I apologize for the mishap, it will not happen again, I have told my brother he cannot be in the room with me when I report on lunar eclipses in the future.”
