Syzygy

Hopefully the conditions are decent for folks. With all the build-up, it’d be kind of a bummer not to be able to catch at least a glimpse of the solar eclipse today- total for some, partial for most. The next opportunity will be a partial eclipse in some areas of the country in 2023, or a total eclipse for some in 2024. Or if one has the means, just travel to the spot where the next one is scheduled. Various types of eclipse happen with some regularity around the world.

Apparently, the moon’s increasingly elliptical orbit means that in about 600 million years, there won’t be any more solar eclipses. So try not to miss the next one when it comes around.

May the skies be clear.
