Outshone by the Sun for so long and finally given a chance to prove itself with a full solar eclipse in the largest venue imaginable, the Moon’s pride demanded unprecedented hype for the production.
Because the promoters failed to hire a weather service, however, few were able to see the event through the cloud cover, and the Moon’s embarrassment was unendurable throughout the hours-long procession to exit the stage.
