I took Astro C10 in 2009 and had a similarly wonderful experience. One time I asked Filippenko about rainbows around the moon and whether they're an illusion or what -- I had had a pretty revealing acid experience the week before wherein I'd seen rainbows shooting out of the moon, and we were about to learn about the moon in class anyway -- and he winked at me and said something to the effect of "depending on your perspective, the rainbows are definitely real." Then he played "Dark Side of the Moon" in class later that week. I miss his course!
