Space Oddities – 07.28.2017:  NASA and Eclipse 2017

In case you haven’t heard, August 21st is going to be a totally awesome day!

It is the day of the ECLIPSE OF THE SUN!!  Depending on where you are, it will either be partial or total.

NASA of course, has started a countdown.  Click here for links to the SCIENCE and SAFETY of this incredible event!

And speaking of countdowns, just ’cause it’s Friday, here’s 80s hair band Europe.   🙂

 

 

A big thanks to Candy of Sew Geek Mama for nominating me for Versatile Blogger Award.   We just recently started following each other.  You just have to see her picture on her about page (the site’s link above) to see why we just might have a few things in common.  🙂    Check out her site and the other nominees!
