If you are among the curious, July 21-22 will be the longest total solar eclipse of the 21st century, there will be no other eclipse to rival its duration until 2132. It will last 6 minutes and 39 seconds, and will reach its maximum phase at 02:35:21 UTC, some 100 km south of the Bonin Islands to the southeast of Japan. The NASA web site about this is: NASA/Eclipse

It is to be broadcast on the following web sites: Univ. of North Dakota

Though it will not be visable in north America, it's still a big deal to astronomers, astrologers and ordinary folks who think things like these are cool!

Though listed as July 22, it is really tonight, July 21, for us North America's, totality around 7:30 PDT

Now wouldn't Eclipse be a good name for a FGRV? They could come in both white and black, or maybe an egg of the future that changes color from white to black and back depending upon if it needed to absorb or repell heat!

Okay...I've been in the sun too much and it's 96 here!
