Solar Eclipse!

Partial Solar Eclipse coming this Monday!

The last major partial solar eclipse in NJ was on May 10, 1994*. About 84% of the sun was eclipsed.  
I took the boys out of school and we went to the American Museum of Natural History / Hayden Planetarium in Manhattan.

We were interviewed by Fox national news. (Busted!)
