Total Eclipse of the Sun

…well not really, but looking at the crude tracing from my primitive desktop observatory (piece of paper with pinhole taped to my office window) it looks like nearly 80% of the sun was blotted out this afternoon. The sky was nearly cloudless, so it looked particularly eerie—the sky was notably darkened as if you were wearing sunglasses. Out of the now 16 active MBAEC volunteers scattered across this side of the globe, only Manish was able to witness a full eclipse in Kazakhstan; I look forward to reading his account (see blog links to right.)
