If you missed it the other day, here is a shot that I got. The Chinese Students in the class said there is a legend that an eclipse is a dragon trying to eat the sun.
There must be more than one version of the legend (not surprising as china is a HUGE country of varying cultures). I heard legend tell that it was a giant dog trying to eat the sun, and that the people have to make as much noise and such as possible to scare the dog away so it doesn't eat the whole thing. That's why there are always fireworks durring the eclipse… that and theire just so darn cool haha.
