I love that word. How it looks, how it sounds... like I want to drink it down and savor the sparkling goodness.
And, I like real eclipses, too. They're so mysterious and strange.
I came to work yesterday, and Pii Bua (the housekeeper) pointed out to me the last minute of a partial solar eclipse visible here in Thailand.
It was really great, but I was a bit disappointed that I didn't know ahead of time, so I could watch the whole thing.
By the way, anyone remember that total solar eclipse in the US in... 1994? It was incredible!
Anyway, so as not to miss another astronomical wonder, I'm saving this website on my Favorites and sharing it with all of you:
