Total Solar Eclipse!! (Thursday 21st) Unfortunatly for us in the US, we will not be able to see the event, but those who take the journey to southern Africa will be treated to the eclipse at it's very best. An interesting quote from Science.Nasa.gov is as follows:
"For nearly four minutes a curious twilight will descend where the afternoon Sun normally beats down bright and hot. Nocturnal animals like bats, owls and astronomers will suddenly become active as the New Moon passes in front of the Sun blocking out our star's fiery disk."

More news!
