B.o.B on the Solar Eclipse: 'The Moon Actually Generates Its Own Light'
But, actually, it doesn't.
The solar eclipse arrived this afternoon, along with some new takes from respected astronomer, Bobby Ray Simmons Jr.

You realize that the only reason you see the moon in the first place is because the sun casts light on it right? All light is behind it now.— BoMonster (@Bo_Monster) August 21, 2017
according to a textbook yes, but the moon actually generates its own light https://t.co/PyUO2SHdmf— B.o.B (@bobatl) August 21, 2017
Wait, wait. Hear him out.
So you're telling me there are light bulbs in the moon? How the hell does it generate light? It's a rock. Is it flat to you too?— BoMonster (@Bo_Monster) August 21, 2017
a spherical object doesn't reflect/refract light evenly across its surface https://t.co/q8wYLhapqF— B.o.B (@bobatl) August 21, 2017
The last time B.o.B’s science views were in the news, they led to a back and forth with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. Tyson hasn’t weighed in on B.o.B’s latest claim… yet.
