Solar Eclipse on Friday!

This Friday, August 1, 2008, the moon will pass directly between the sun and Earth causing a total solar eclipse for the first time in two years. Unfortunately, this event won’t be visible unless you happen to be reside in remote parts of the Northern Hemisphere.

Fortunately, the Exploratorium Museum in San Francisco will be web-casting the event LIVE from China!

Visit www.exploratorium.edu/eclipse/2008/ to learn more, and don’t forget to set your alarms because while the next solar eclipse takes place a year from now, the next total eclipse visible in the U.S. won’t occur until 2017!
