Sadly, I missed the first solar eclipse of the millenium that occured this morning at around 10:00 a.m Oman time. Sleep is precious. I had prepared my set of heavy film-negative goggles that make it safe to watch, and I was kind of excited. The last one happened when I was a child, and I remember my mother making the glasses for us using old film negative, and I remember waiting for it to happen. It was so amazing. The majestic sun disappeared and turned black in broad daylight. Of course, many superstitious people are terrified of solar eclipses, but all I can say is 'Subhan Allah'. Our universe is amazing and inspiring.
Did any of you watch it? Anyone remember the eclipse that happened back in early 1992?
