Why don'y they tell people on the news the day before, rather than reporting 'oh, lots of people missed it' on every news network 9 hours later? Fucks.
Why did google change their page AFTER the fucking event?
um, don't feel bad. honestly - the world gets "SPECTACULAR ONCE IN A LIFETIME" type astrononmical events like bi-monthly. despite what the headlines will tell you, there is no special eclipse that anybody is missing out on. it's a regular, automatic, common occurrence. you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between this one and any future ones.
subscribe to a skywatching blog, you'll have celestial events to look forward to every week and won't have to rely on the oversensationalized after-the-fact media.
