March 29: Solar Eclipse
Warning! This post is very old and may contain information or opinions that are no longer valid or embarrassing.
We are one of the lucky countries to be in the path of the Moon's umbral shadow in the upcoming solar eclipse. We can see a total eclipse from El-Sallum. Many people are already planning their trips and are going to set up camps and other observational areas for scientists and non-scientists. I personally want to go and watch the bright disc.

Please remember to wear special made protective sunglasses.
(do you have any idea where could I get those sunglasses?)
