A Day Late and A Dollar Short...

I fucked up.

One of the biggest celestial events of the year occurred in North America a couple of days ago, and not a word on my blog about it...until now. This was an event that most anyone, even folks that rarely make a photo, would want to capture - and this page was a day late and a dollar short. My apologies for that...

So, I'm going to re-frame this post as general guide/checklist to observing solar eclipses. Solar eclipses happen about twice a year, so this should prove useful for those of us at points on the globe able to witness the next eclipse. For us in Canada, please bookmark this page and return to it in seven years (2024) to get a jump on our turn at witnessing a total (rather than a partial) eclipse.

If you'd like to know when the next solar eclipse is in your country, the BBC has this handy calculator.

Feature Photograph of the Week - Sunrise on The Ganges

 Since we've all converted to sun-worshippers this week, I thought I'd present  Sunrise On The Ganges  as this week's photo of the week. On the bank of the Ganges River at Varanasi, an early morning boat ride at Sunrise
