Eclipse

The CNN story describes the total eclipse of the sun which happened on Friday, visible in parts of the northern hemisphere.

 At the moment of “totality,” when the moon’s shadow totally obscures the sun, the sun’s outer atmosphere — the solar corona — becomes visible. NASA says this seldom-seen sight — visible for about two minutes at most — is coveted by experienced eclipse watchers and an awe-inspiring vision for first-time viewers.

Over at The Big Picture, The Boston Globe site, there are incredible images of Jupiter. I love this astronomy business.
