Observing the Eclipse

Just a reminder that on Monday August 21st, 2017 there will be a eclipse of the sun visible throughout much of Canada and the United States.   Eclipse are an amazing and very accessible astronomical phenomenal but it is important to take precautions to protect your vision if you are going to observe a solar eclipse.   You may want to order something like this Eclipse View from RASC now so you are prepared for the summer.  Otherwise you may want to consider making a pin hole camera.  


Give me a cabin

Give me a cabin in the woods, where not a human soul presides
Where I can sit beside a stream, beneath a balsam bough and dream,
And every morning see arise, the sun link bird of paradise.
