Eclipse (Or eclipless?)

I'm about to watch the sun go black. Eclipses are sweet.

Anyone else get to see it?

We'll get a bit of it here, but will have to wait until July next year for a total one. Be careful with your eyes -- the goggles, they do nothing!

Heard on the radio this morning that you had to be in Siberia, Greenland or there abouts to see it. I don't think I will make it.

Yup...and how.

But it was pretty neat. Definitely a first for me...I've lost my solar eclipse virginity.
It's really exciting to see, and there's a little midieval impulse in you that is relieved when the sun comes back again!

Damn I missed it.

Last year we went to the hot springs to watch the lunar eclipse. It was amazing.

Wrong part of the world for you. It was only visible from Asia.


When I was in high school one came through. I was fascinated watching the ground. The tree in the court yard was making pinhole effects. There were thousands and thousands of crescent moons slowly getting thinner scattered throughout its shadow.
