Solar Eclipse 20.03.2015.

Hey! I really had to come here just to post this, I would not be me if I didn’t. ๐Ÿ˜€

Tomorrow is a Solar Eclipse!


AND it is visible in Europe! For the first time since 1999.! Which I remember, by the way. ๐Ÿ™‚ That does not mean that there were no Solar Eclipses in between (2006., 2011.) but none as visible as the one in 1999.


Here is the map of where it will be visible and I think you can get the info of when at your local online media.


And now, lets get more sciency. Is that a word? Now it is. ๐Ÿ˜‰

What causes a solar eclipse?

A solar eclipse happens whenever the new moon passes in front of the sun, and the moonโ€™s shadow falls on our planet. A solar eclipse is only possible at new moon because thatโ€™s the only time whereby the moon to go in front of the sun, as seen from Earth. Most of the time, however, the new moon either swings north or south of the solar disk, so no eclipse of the sun takes place.

Why new moon? On the day of new moon, the moon rises when the sun rises. It sets when the sun sets. It crosses the sky with the sun during the day. (source:


Protect your eyes.

Do not look directly at the Sun. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ It causes permanent damage to your eye and possible blindness. That is no fun. That’s why you can look at the Solar Eclipse through glasses design for it and better telescopes with filters design for it. Also, you can catch a glimpse through a glass covered in carbon black, but that is not recommended. The best way to look at it is to make your projector. It is simple and instructions are here: MAKE YOUR PROJECTOR

Oh I can’t wait for professional photos of tomorrows Solar Eclipse and images from ISS (International Space Station) ๐Ÿ˜€

View on the Earth like never before - NASA HD cameras

Woooooooooow o_O

If you are sky/stars gazer like me, you love this kind of stuff. NASA is conducting an experiment to see how the radiation from the Sun affects cameras and made them face Earth at all times so it is also an exciting and special thing to see.

If the cameras are down, the screen is grey.
