the universe according to now

i'm showing you this solar eclipse photo by abhaykohok on flickr because i think its cool, and now that you know it has been done, you wont try it at home!! (potentially dangerous).


this photo one of the entries in this month's collection of photos called "the universe according to now" for the Royal Observatory's Astronomy Photographer of the Year project.

I am absolutly shocked!

Thank God we have someone wise like you to teach us about things that are dangerous!

"...now that you know it has been done, you wont try it at home!! (potentially dangerous)."

We would never have guessed that looking at the Sun could hurt our eyes!

Amanda, do have you any idea how insulting that statement was?
