Lifelist Accomplishment #26

Lifelist # 26  "Witnessed a solar eclipse"

It was in the year of 1999. A warm summer day that turned almost as dark as the night. Back then, my photography skills were not good at all, so there is no better picture than this one. But I did find a picture online from the same town and the same year:

A total solar eclipse happens when the moon moves in front of the sun, so really, it moves in between sun and earth, covering the sun, so it gets dark.
It was pretty cool to watch this event, even if it only lasted for a few minutes, literally.

Blogger won't let me comment on your karaoke post, so I'll do it here. I think karaoke is totally fun. :) Good for you for getting out of your comfort zone!

I've seen eclipses but I have not ever been in the right part of the world to see one that is total. Very cool.
