Default Eclipse Month Is Here!!

First off - from the anything-you-can-do-I-can-do (sort-of) file, here's some great photos/video from Monday's partial lunar eclipse over Asia and Europe. Anybody out there see it?

Meanwhile - for us Statesiders, the countdown is on: two weeks to go, til the Great American Eclipse arrives!



Lucky you, who are anywhere near the totality path (Oregon to South Carolina)...wish the rest of us were!

Still, we should all see at least some of the Sun disappear, behind the new Moon; I'm hearing we'll see about a one-half-eclipsed Sun, here in SoCal. And well-nigh everybody over here will be covering it live, including online!

Fingers crossed, for good viewing weather (with proper eye protection!)...
