fun with solar eclipses
There is nothing in life you can experience that is as breathtaking as total solar eclipse. The first (and so far only one) I saw was in August 99. And believe me, I've been trying to find the words to describe it ever since then. It is something you should definetely try to see for yourself if you have a chance to. The next total solar eclipse is visible across africa/turkey and parts of russia in March 2006. See you there!

Although a partial eclipse is something completely different from a total eclipse, it is still great to have one happening right at home!
