AMATEUR ASTRONOMY:
YESTERDAY'S ECLIPSE IN VIDEO:
As Molly has mentioned in a previous post yesterday's (August 1) total eclipse of the Sun was not visible in most of Canada. Still, millions of people in Siberia and China got a view. Here's the intro from the Scientific Blogging Site to a video of the eclipse as it occurred in the Xingiang Uiyger Autonomous Region of northwest China earlier yesterday. See the above link for the video.

August 1 2008 Solar Eclipse Video:
On August 1, a total solar eclipse was visible in parts of Canada, northern Greenland, the Arctic, central Russia, Mongolia and China. The eclipse swept across Earth in a narrow path that began in Canada’s northern territory of Nunavut and ended in northern China’s Silk Road region.

Though the eclipse was not visible in most of North America, NASA TV and the Exploratorium made streaming video of the event available online. The following images are taken from that video, shot from the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region in northwestern China near the Mongolian border. The sun appears differently in some of the images because of the different filters used to capture the event. Times listed are ET and approximate.

Looks like commercial spam to me, but I'll let it go- THIS TIME. "Client Pressure"- Blah ! Despite the illusions of one childish reader of this board I have NEVER removed anything here for anything other than removing commercial spam. I actually suspect that said individual, who went into a hissy-fit because he "thought" that I deleted one of his comments(when he probably made a mistake and commented on a previous blog on the same subject) went down this board and tried to delete all of his previous comments. I'll check if I have NOTHING else to do. Til then...wheeee. Love the insanity that leftism, including anarchism, cam sometimes attract.
