I can't wait! August 21 of this August there will be the first full solar eclipse since 1979, visible in North America. Also visible will be Venus and Mercury. I love these celestial events! In the words of my favorite movie....." There will be a day without a night, and a night without a day"..
(Kudos if you know the movie without looking it up!)
We hope to be in America for this event. When we had the last one 1999? My family all went down to Cornwall as that was the best place to experience it. Well the weather was awful no chance if seeing it. Hubby watched it on the tele while I took our two boys down to the beach. Only we couldn't see anything but the atmosphere changed, loads of others came down to the beach, it was quite eerie. The annoying thing is that if we had stayed at home we would have seen something of it. Hope we have better luck this time.
