Oh, come on...don't make this about something other than what it is.

The Grey Area is that way - this thread isn't for that.

If you start dragging alterna-topics in here, I'll come back later this evening to find aliens, reptiles, flying pigs and barking hamsters flying toasters across the skyline littered all over this thread.

Joking aside...serious is for serious, it's just an eclipse

You're welcome - the stream is replaying two vantage points of the eclipse, so if you are patient you can see both...personally the second video is the best of the two.

I wish I could find a link for more, but so go.

I know. I was just pointing out the Moon's unique very close to exact ratio to the sun in size from Earth perspective.

You never know.

That's crazy talk! Back to the funny farm for you crazy man!

I remember seeing a partial one when I was younger, late 90's I think, possibly 1999? It was stunning to watch, luckily we didn't have too much cloud where we were. It was really eerie though (despite knowing the science behind it), suddenly there was silence, all wildlife went quiet and the temperature dropped slightly, it felt surreal. Sadly I'll never see another one in my life time here in the uk, not unless I live to the ripe old age of 109 ... at which point I'll likely be a crazy cat lady

Hey Phage,

Whenever I get to witness the workings of the cosmos in my petty little life, I like to think about how the ancients looked up with the same awe and interest, at least the brave ones, and truly appreciate our ship that travels the Heavens.

For some reason, Isaac Asimov's Nightfall has always stuck in my head when I hear about Eclipses'. The book was a short story turned novel and here is a little synopse from amazon I just borrowed ---

Because of its six suns, the planet Kalgash is bathed in perpetual sunlight. However, once every 2,049 years all six suns are eclipsed, plunging the planet into total darkness and causing widespread madness that results in the civilization's complete destruction, thus allowing the cycle to begin again. Night fall , expanded from Asimov's 1941 award-winning short story, lets readers experience the cataclysmic event through the eyes and biases of a newspaperman, an astronomer, an archaeologist, a psychologist, and a religious fanatic. This novel improves upon the original through the use of better developed characters and an expanded, more textured story that results in an absorbing, richer tale. - John Lawson, Fairfax County Public Library, Fairfax,

It's a book I'm sure you've probably read, but for those who haven't, I highly recommend it. Really hits close to home as far as mainstream science's refusal to accept something that goes against their thinking.

Anyhow, I really love how we can see things that happen halfway around the world from the comfort of our homes. Knowledge cannot be hidden from the masses anymore, we are truly a global community today.

I am looking at that very book right now on my bookshelf... one of my all time favorites! In fact, I haven't read it for a while, I think I will read it again.

I know, I really enjoyed it as well. It's been years since I've read it but it's story has stuck in my mind since. I went searching for a copy on Amazon and the only one was from a reseller for $160+ bucks, lol. I remember reading and waiting for the climax, when Nightfall hit and the Stars came out and the reaction of all the naysayers, great reading!

I will have to check my local used book stores for a copy, I want to re-read it as well!
