    Europe: We're having a total solar eclipse on the equinox!

    http://www.fromquarkstoquasars.com/y...solar-eclipse/

    I read somewhere else that the full total eclipse will be happening in Scotland, but we can still get a good part of it in most of Europe. Here in Germany, it will be a very visible partial eclipse. I'm crossing my fingers that it will be sunny in Berlin (looks promising, but March in Berlin is a wild card)

    Who is excited? Does anyone have any plans?

    I usually make a big feast on the spring equinox. It's usually a big day for me spiritually. I want to get my hands on some of those glasses to watch the equinox as well. I always feel a strong draw from the sun, so I'm really excited about a solar event on the day that marks longer days and more sunlight!

    I saw that...the only thing that would make it any cooler was if there were a full moon/supermoon the same day too!

    Enjoy!

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”

    In typical Berlin style, it's supposed to be sunny and warm every day next week, and then suddenly get cloudy and cold on Friday

    I'm crossing my fingers that the bad weather gets delayed, or at least doesn't kick in until the afternoon!

    All of last week was clear skies and sun. It has turned over the weekend, now it's just cloudy and cold. From what I can tell it's supposed to stay like this until next weekend. But that may still change one can always hope.

    It was sunny after all here! Beautiful day with full sun! I couldn't figure out where to get glasses to watch it and didn't want to pay a lot of money for them (considering they're something you can only use once, maybe twice in your life), so I did a bit of research. A science blog had an entry on how to make a basic pinhole camera to watch a solar eclipse, so I made one out of two paper plates. It was actually pretty cool. It was rudimentary, but I could watch how the moon moved over the sun. People were pretty fascinated with it. I'm probably in at least 20 people's photos, haha.

    It's really been quite the week for celestial events, hasn't it? The solar flares/aurora borealis, the total solar eclipse (dramatic partial eclipse for most of Europe), the supermoon today, and the spring equinox.
