    Talking Solar Eclipse! North America -- 2017!!

    YAAAAAAAA!!!!!


    Ok, so I'm super duper excited this is happening because as a mega Astronomy buff (thanks dad) for my entire life, I WILL FINALLY GET TO SEE THIS.

    On August 21, 2017 a total solar eclipse will be visible across a good portion of the good ol' US of A!!

    There hasn't been a total solar eclipse over N. America since 1979 and won't come again until 2024. I am personally planning to make a trip to see this and I'm starting to save now.

    This is a once in a life time thing and I can't be the only one excited for it.

    Will anyone else be making the effort to see it next year?

    I remember the one in '79 (also the only one I've ever seen).

    I look forward to experiencing another. What I most remember is that my cat had a panic attack, and hid for the duration.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    I hope the weather is good.
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    Enjoy it! We had one in Europe last year and it was truly spectacular, even though it wasn't a total eclipse where I live!

    In 2017 it is indeed a total solar eclipse but the one in 2024 is an annular eclipse. The moon will be further away and the outer portion of the sun will show around it. It is considerably less spectacular and you never get totality. If you want to see a total eclipse then travel to see the one in 2017. It will be a long time until the next totality in the states.

    The one we had here was total as well, but not from where I am...you had to be really far North (I think the total part was visible in Norway and parts of northern Scotland) to see the totality. But even several hundred KM away, it was still spectacular, so if you can't travel, it's still worth checking out!
