Uncanny global happening. Strange event in the sky. The signs appear all around us.

Such as this one.

The description reads: “Autobahnwarnhinweis Sonnenfinsternis bei Strasbourg Frankreich”, which I think means “Autobahn warning solar eclipse in Starsbourg, France”. (Anybody out there who can speak German and translate?)

As far as I can tell, this is a sign put up along the highway for the August 11, 1999 total solar eclipse in Europe, probably to warn motorists who may not be aware of the impending event in case they should be surprised by the sky growing dark suddenly during broad daylight.

Just so none of us are in the same predicament and caught unawares, the next total eclipse is going to happen on July 22, 1999.
