I have a friend (EE PhD) who stayed up late one night to watch a lunar eclipse with his first wife. As it began, his wife was getting frustrated as she couldn't see it, finally she blurts out, I can see Europe. He blurted out laughing and she made him promise not to tell anyone. I got to work at 8am and had heard the story before even getting my first cup of coffee. I was best man 2yrs later to his second/current wife and they're approaching 30yrs.
