In the winter of 1985 I was driving through the Mojave Desert with a friend, talking about our apparent need for new river gear. As we passed the Twenty Nine Palms Marine Base, a man unexpectedly appeared on the side of the road selling used ammo cans. My friend and I laughed wildly and quickly came to realize that the moment was "All In A Days' Karma". This blog contains the occasional ramblings of a died-in-the-wool westerner who loves seeing, understanding, and being alive upon these landscapes. I cherish the moments of bliss and irony that come to all of us as we explore the planet and its residents (and perhaps visitors) in the short time we are here.

Watch a Lunar Shadow Trapse Across Africa

The Moon's shadow approaching Africa during the November 3 total solar eclipse

On November 3 of this year, a total solar eclipse was observed in areas of the eastern Atlantic Ocean and equatorial Africa. Dr. Maximillian Reuter posted a moving image of the moon's shadow going across the Earth's surface on that date. Let the image load here on the Earth Science Picture of the Day web site and watch the magic!
