August 08, 2008
Last weekend the sun went dark as the moon completely covered it. The total solar eclipse took place from Northern Canada to China. In honor of China and the 2008 Beijing Olympics, here is a picture of the total eclipse taken at Xinjiang, China. Due to the darkened sun, the planets Mercury and Venus can be seen in the upper left portion of the picture. The next total solar eclipse will take place in July ('09) and be visible in parts of China and India. -Shelly
