eclipse

I wrote “eclipse” after the August 11, 1999 total eclipse of the sun that crossed the Atlantic and then made a path straight across Europe, and ended in the Indian Ocean.

Following the total eclipse of June 21, 2001, I found an animated gif on the Internet showing the path of the moon’s shadow over the earth.
