Reminder: Solar eclipse of Wednesday, March 29, 2006

"If you could move freely on the globe, you could enjoy the awesome spectacle of a total eclipse of the sun pretty often. The next one is scheduled to darken the daytime skies on Wednesday, March 29, 2006.

This week, you might be in Africa or Turkey. You might be cruising on the Mediterranean, Black and Caspian Seas right now, waiting for Wednesday’s eclipse. Your big concern would be the weather.

This total solar eclipse will rank as the top astronomical event for the year, for those in the right place to see it…"
