Default Annular Eclipse Alert

People living in East Asia and USA in a narrow band of the path of eclipse have got a rare opportunity to view the coming annular (ring like) solar eclipse this week-end. See http://science.nasa.gov/science-news.../15may_sunday/. Please keep a watch and submit photos! Unfortunately, it is not visible in India, so I am out of the race.

Incidentally, please go out and have a look at Venus just after sunset any time over the next few days. Then take up your binocular or telescope and look again. A pleasant surprise awaits you!
