Some cool things to check out regarding the total solar eclipse on the 29th of March.

  • Some interesting information from Scientific American:

    Such a total eclipse is relatively rare–the next one for observers in the U.S. will not happen until August 21, 2017–because the moon must cross our planet’s orbital plane exactly when it, Earth and the sun are aligned, and its nighttime side faces us.

  • And then a lot of stuff from NASA– pictures, information, videos, audio.
  • And finally, some spectacular photographs of this (and past) solar eclipse at Flickr.
