Solar eclipse 2009

And now for something completely different:

There are lots of videos of yesterday’s solar eclipse.

We prefer this one, in part for the great telescopic images at totality, but also for the narration, provided by NASA scientists. They don’t let scientific accuracy drain their human excitement at witnessing a mind-blowing event.

Quite the opposite.  One of our favorite parts is when one man (sorry, we don’t have their names) says in a voice straining with wonder, “It’s this amazing thing where magnetism becomes visible in the sky!”

You’ll have to watch the video to see what he’s talking about — but don’t worry, you will be just as amazed!
