DOES THE UNIVERSE STILL AMAZE YOU? April 14th/15th (west coast/east coast), after you rush to take care of your small, temporal concerns (like paying your income tax), celebrate by staying up late to sit in awe of a larger, celestial event.  This one is close to home, actually.  You will get to enjoy the first of a series of lunar eclipses, where the moon will...
