    Hi All,

    On March 29, 2006, a total eclipse of the Sun will be visible from a
    few lucky parts of the Earth. We have started to gather information and
    advice about this event. It is available at:

    In addition, we have created the Eclipse-2006 WORLD BLOG at:
    You can read about previous experiences, share your thoughts and post
    your own pictures!

    Don't hesitate to give us feedback. We are actively working on the site
    so that it will contain as much information as possible for the week of
    March 29. Even better: help us with advertising it by creating a link
    from your site.

    Enjoy !

  4. For the record, and from that site:

    The path of the Moon's umbral shadow begins in Brazil and extends
    across the Atlantic, northern Africa, and central Asia where it ends at
    sunset in western Mongolia. A partial eclipse will be seen within the
    much broader path of the Moon's penumbral shadow, which includes the
    northern two thirds of Africa, Europe, and central Asia.
    Seeing that site is missing the photography info currently, why not
    check out an old effort of mine:

    It's a bit geared towards film, but it mostly still applies. If you've
    never seen an eclipse.. well, just don't die before you make the effort
    to get to one. The images cannot convey what the feeling is, to
    actually witness the event.

    Ironically, after creating the above tips on how to photograph the
    eclipse, I cleverly broke my ankle and wasn't able to travel to the
    event! But I did see one back in 1976.

    The information on your page is very nice.

    May I import this information into the photography page on the eclipse
    site, giving you due credit of course?

  6. That's absolutely fine. It desperately needs a 'digital update'

    The old email address on that site no longer works, but my email
    address here (mark.thomas.7 at is valid if you wish to
    discuss anything.
