[Found under: “Hunahuna Huikau.”]

It will not be seen after all.—We reported in Issue 4 of our Newspaper, “the moon will be eclipsed o n the 13th of September, and it will be seen here in Hawaii.” The Famous School Teacher of Punahou proclaimed to us that the moon will indeed be eclipsed on that day, but the eclipse will not be visible here in Hawaii; it will be seen in other lands.

[But don’t forget we can see one tonight! …Well, if you can stay up that late or get up that early…]

(Kuokoa,  2/9/1867, p. 3)
