Slightly another type of eclipse image:


But also a classical (eclipse) image between full and none "occultation" cool.gif

Let's just hope nobody is tempted to add photos of a Full Moon.

Why we are so lucky to have Luna as our moon when it comes to
making total solar eclipses compared to the other planets:


But we'd better enjoy each one we get, because in just 500 million years
the best we'll have are only annular ones, no more totalities.

"After having some business dealings with men, I am occasionally chagrined,
and feel as if I had done some wrong, and it is hard to forget the ugly circumstance.
I see that such intercourse long continued would make one thoroughly prosaic, hard,
and coarse. But the longest intercourse with Nature, though in her rudest moods, does
not thus harden and make coarse. A hard, sensible man whom we liken to a rock is
indeed much harder than a rock. From hard, coarse, insensible men with whom I have
no sympathy, I go to commune with the rocks, whose hearts are comparatively soft."

- Henry David Thoreau, November 15, 1853
