Two eclipses this month. a Solar today and a Lunar on 16th. Well its no fun because I dont remember having seen either. Its always cloudy here in the rainy season. Besides we get to see only a partial eclipse. some religious practices i heard of today from a friend reminded me of what happened in Tintin and the Prisoners Of The Sun and in another book by Enid Blyton. Lets see if today is any better. Its supposed to be seen at 4:42pm to 6:02pm in Bangalore. so i guess the same holds for us at Mangalore.
