Mom’s comment on Texas museum’s solar eclipse party post goes viral

Dallas’ Perot Museum of Nature and Science has scheduled a party for the upcoming, very rare solar eclipse set to cross the country Aug. 21.

One mom’s comment on the Facebook post for the event, however, drew almost as much attention as the expected phenomenon itself.

Although the comment has since been deleted, the Houston Chronicle reports that one woman asked, “Most kids go back to school that day. Can it be done on the weekend?” 

A reasonable request, really. Scientific law aside, that is. 

The woman’s question drew teasing comments like, “Did this lady just ask to reschedule the sun?” and “Can we please do this during the evening hours instead?” and “I’ll just go see it yesterday,” and “Does anyone know if there’s a rain date?” and “My cat’s quinceañera is that day.”
