There was a solar eclipse this morning and just as it went noticeably darker I glanced out my window and inadvertently looked right at the sun. How bad is my luck? All week I’ve been desperately hoping to see the aurora borealis only to be disappointed by cloud and fog. The minute there’s a solar eclipse all the clouds disappear and I look right at it. I didn’t even want to look at it! Now I’ve probably got permanent eye damage and I’ll go blind the moment before a red squirrel and a pine marten make out in our backyard.
Elizabeth drew this cool space diary yesterday. I’ll translate the planet names below.
Starting from Earth at the top (under Space diary) and moving around anti-clockwise: moon, alien planet, candy planet, star planet, sheep planet (must be NZ), birthday planet (she pronounces birthday, birfday), moon planet, sleep planet. I like the sound of birthday planet.
