Sunday, as you probably know, there is an eclipse. But not for us in Cayman. It will be dark here when the eclipse happens. Which is a shame, because as you know. I like stuff like that. Below is the best eclipse map I could find today. Click to enlarge. A week ago I found some really really nice maps, and thought “I’m gonna put those on my blog” Now I can’t find them. Typical. However, the map below is very good. Maybe you will see at least a partial eclipse.
I remember years ago I was laying on the beach, and a cloud passed over the sun. Through the clouds, I could see spots on the sun. I thought to myself, “Sunspots?” I got up and drove to the auto parts store and bought a replacement lens for a welding mask and looked at the sun again. Yeah, definitely saw black spots on it.So I posted a question on some astronomy forum or another about if I was seeing actual sunspots and the answer was yes, you can sometimes see sunspots with just your eye.
