It is Friday and Fridays are for fun. There is going to be a total eclipse of the sun on Monday. I have a screen print from a map I found on the internet.
Monday’s eclipse is billed as a once in a life time event. The last total eclipse viewable in the U.S. was in 1979, and there will be another on April 8th 2024.
I might be alive to see the next one. I remember the last one. I got to watch it through a hole in a cardboard box. . . or maybe that wasn’t the last one but it was another one, but this will be the only one where there will be a 83.04% view of a 100% eclipse right from home, assuming it isn’t cloudy. Nebraska would be a great place to be on Monday.
Right now Monday’s forecast calls for clouds. Oh well we can watch it being live streamed on twitter and probably a bunch of other places which will be a pleasant diversion from what we have been watching and reading lately. Enjoy!
