The Total Solar Eclipse of August 1, 2008

Here’s something else to watch over the weekend.

The last eclipse that generated a fair amount of publicity was the total eclipse that happened on August 1, 2008. And the Exploratorium went up to China to catch that event. This is what they saw.

Exploratorium

(The Exploratorium is based in San Francisco, and it’s a museum of science, art, humans and technology that created the “hands on” movement among museums around the world. About a thousand museums internationally that trace their exhibits or programmes to the Exploratorium. Its mission is to provide the general public, even those with the most limited scientific knowledge, the joy of discovery. And hopes inspire young and old, academic or artist, and provide a better understanding of science and nature.)
