I am totally fascinated with all of the natural occurrences that happen to the Earth. Today, May 20, 2012, there will be a solar eclipse, where the moon will pass by the sun partially in some areas and more in others depending on where you are in the US. I find it interesting that we live on a planet, where activity is continuously happening all around us. We, as humans, have continuously adapted to these natural occurrences on Earth from when we go to sleep at night to when we wake up, to how we dress for its seasons, to how we eat and produce crops. Some groups are now planning visits to SPACE!
When these natural occurrences happen, I do often wonder if we ARE alone and how easily we accept what we see on planet Earth.
Here's a video I found by Science@NASA, explaining what you will be able to see later today. From where I am in California, I should begin to see movement between 5:30pm-6:30pm. I hear that you should not look at it through sun glasses because it can damage the eyes but there are special glasses for this type of watching. It's all pretty Amazing to me!
