A total solar eclipse is an amazing event.
It is inexpressibly beautiful yet scientifically accurate.
Think about how improbable it is for an eclipse to occur
at all with the Sun being 400 times larger than the moon
yet 400 times farther away from the Earth. The apparent
disk of the Moon is just large enough to cover the whole SunYet
the phenomenon is predictable to the last detail: the
moment and location of future eclipses are known for many
millennia, and could be computed accurately. Details are
specifics to each eclipse and make up its glory sights.
We can see at the naked eye during totality the corona's
platinum light, solar flares, Bailey's beads, shadow bands.
Even animals react with bewilderment, not talking about
the humans especially those at Jalu.
Totality! Jalu April 29, 2006
The March 29th 2006
Solar Eclipse This total solar eclipse,
the fourth of the new century will be visible in a narrow
band crossing close to half the Earth's surface. Starting
from Eastern Brazil, it will cross Africa diagonally, then
Turkey and South West Asia It will only be
partial in Algeria.
As expected, the Sirius Astronomy Association answered ready
for this great astronomical event.
The Algerian Caravan
for Science and Brotherhood
Sirius is organizing
a National Caravan heading toward Libya to observe the eclipse
inside the band of totality. This caravan called "The
Algerian Caravan for Science and Brotherhood"
will leave Constantine on the 26 of March for the international
observing site of Jalu in the Eastern South of Libya.
