Total Solar Eclipse of 2008 August 1st in Siberia
A solar eclipse is a rarely observed phenomenon, while a total solar eclipse can be seen rarer by far – 5 or 6 times a decade. However, what happens even less frequently is a total solar eclipse to be observed exclusively in a particular part of the planet.
I am thrilled that this particular part of the planet just so happens to be right where Martin and I will be on August 1st. Chances are very good that we'll get to see it. Of course, if it's a choice between seeing our little girl again and seeing the eclipse, well I hope our facilitator will take photos of the big E for us 'cuz you know where I'll be!
Finally, for those of you who will not be in the path of this amazing event, you can view it via a live feed directly from China. Just be sure to check the time-zone. Hint, hint: it will be 5:30 am in Springfield, TN.
