Solar Eclipse

Some members of the Orange County Space Society are on a cruse ship viewing the Solar eclipse. Here is an interactive map on Space Weather.
Tourists and scientists were gathering at spots around the world for a solar show -- the first total eclipse in years, which will sweep northeast from Brazil to Mongolia, blotting out the sun across swathes of of the world's poorest lands.

Wednesday's eclipse will blot out the sun in highly populated areas, including west Africa, where governments scrambled to educate people about the dangers of looking at the eclipse without proper eye protection.

Fearless Leader Sue,

I couldn't locate an email address for you here, so I am using a comment to contact you (although the subject matter is not directly related to the blog post).

I am an administrator on OmniNerd.com and recently came across your this blog. It caught my eye because we have had some requests on OmniNerd for an article concerning space exploration.

OmniNerd.com is a site dedicated to nerdery. It features daily news and discussion as well as original articles. These articles cover just about every area of academia and technology, but they have one thing in common: they are well documented, highly reviewed, and (of course) nerdy.

What's the point of all of this? We think you could be the author of an article on OmniNerd arguing the issues around continued space exploration, although the exact scope of the article would be up to you as the author. OmniNerd also offers resources to write the article online, collaborate with other users, and receive all the feedback you want from OmniNerd Moderators.

I invite you to take a look around OmniNerd (at the articles, specifically) to see if this is something that might interest you. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at the email below. I look forward to hearing from you.
