Solar Eclipse
What would you cross the world to see?

People from all around the world descended on northern Australia today to witness one of the most amazing sights in nature -- a total solar eclipse where the moon completely covers the face of the sun. The fact they're the exact same size in the sky (the moon is obviously smaller but much closer) means you get a quick glimpse of the glowing corona surrounding the sun, which is normally hidden from view.

RE: Solar Eclipse
It seems I always have cloudy skies when there has been a lunar eclipse that would be viewable from the west coast of Canada.
