According to a Boland newspaper (the DistrictMail/DistriksPos for Friday, August 22, page 8), last Saturday's lunar eclipse was "caused by Mars passing very close to the moon."

Good grief. The newspaper's telephone number is (021) 853-0211.

Update (2008 August 25)

Senior Journalist Ms Freddie van Sittert is considering publishing a follow-up story with correct information in the next issue of the newspaper. Good stuff.
