Solar Eclipse 2012

By: j2008 , 2:33 AM GMT on May 21, 2012

This years solar eclipse has come and gone and made for quite a spectacular show. The Eclipse started around 530 local time and ended around sunset at 730. I engineered a cheap way to view the event by putting three sets of sunglasses together which I'm not fully sure wheather to consider safe or just dumb. In other news the second tropical depression of the year in the EPAC (East Pacific) has formed. I expect it to slowely travel to the NE generally paralell to the Mexican Coastline. It should become Bud by tomorrow afternoon or evening. I'm giveing it a 70% chance of being a hurricane sometime in its life as several of the models have hinted at. I'll have another update when/ if Bud forms.
