total solar eclipse
People gathered in the River Ganges in allabad, India to read Hindu tesxt to ward off evil spirits during the total solar eclipse.
These Lebanese students enjoyed the solar eclipse in Beruit!!
The solar eclipse that happened yesterday March 29th will be the last total eclipse until 2008.
These are just a few pictures I thought were cool from the eclipse that happened yesterday. Unfortunately, we couldn't see it on this side of the world.......what would we do without the internet?????
Graphic showing the path of a total eclipse of the sun which crossed four continents on March 29. The faithful said prayers, astronomers and thrill-seekers gazed skyward and watchers clapped in wonder as the moon turned day into night.
My dad was always intereseted in this type of thing, and I wish I would have taken the time to learn more myself.......I guess it's never too late to learn.
