2010 Eclipse Schedule

I made one of those solar eclipse pinhole projectors in the fifth grade, but I just don’t remember much of it at all. Other than that, I can’t remember experiencing an eclipse, ever, and have therefore decided to take part in the rest of the eclipses this year.

(I know they say you could damage your eyes—and even go blind!—if you fully stare at the sun, and I get it; but I do wonder if anyone simply doesn’t know that and has damaged their eyes due to that lack of knowledge? It seems like one of those things they should tell you as soon as your kid is born (along with not giving the little tyke honey until after his first birthday) just to make sure you pass along the info, right?)
