Living in the US, I’m usually plugged into things that happen to the north-western hemisphere, unless it’s a breakthrough that affects the world as a whole. Nonetheless, things like solar eclipses don’t usually escape my notice, but regrettably, this one did. (Not that I have many non-US readers.)
A partial solar eclipse took place today, viewed by millions from Portugal to India where the moon took a chunk off the top of the sun. The moon’s orbit was too far out to create a full eclipse, but the event is pretty cool nonetheless. I remember going outside during school hours to view a solar eclipse — they’re way more interesting than lunar eclipses.
I wish we could have seen it here in the US.
