I realize this has absolutely nothing to do with infosec....but on Saturday March 3rd there will be a really cool total lunar eclipse. NASA has the details on their web site. For most of Asia and the Americas you will see it at moonset or moonrise respectively, Europe and Africa will enjoy it at night. For our mates in eastern Australia and New Zealand you'll just have to watch it on TV.
So if your systems go haywire this weekend you'll have a good story to blame it on. "Boss, there was a full moon, a total lunar eclipse, and for all I know sunspots were acting up....." Your management will have no choice but to believe you.
