Blue skies, waiting for me…

You know how the song goes: “Blue skies, waiting for me. Nothing but blue skies do I see.” And that’s what we hope to be singing up in China next Wednesday morning, 22 July.

To see the spectacular sight of a total solar eclipse, astronomy and solar eclipse buffs plan years in advance. The awesome one set to occur next Wednesday (the longest total eclipse of the 21st century) is no different.

In the past weeks, we’ve met many enthusiasts who purchased their tickets months ago.

Astronomers, from the ones at NASA to academics and students, can crunch the numbers and calculate the science of the Moon and Sun’s movements down to the millisecond.

However, one thing that they can’t be sure of — the weather.

We hope it’s clear blue skies all the way.
