Total Eclipse

The Total Solar Eclipse of August 11, 1999 in France was my first astronomical event.

The sky did darken for a few seconds. I felt the wind blowing on my face, when the Moon

passed between the Sun and Earth, and the Moon blocked the Sun. Total Solar Eclipse

was breathtaking ! It was my very memorable experience. I wore the eclipse glasses,

and so happy to see it. Lunar Eclipse will be on October 8, 2014.
