    [​IMG] Easter Island Eclipse
    Credit & Copyright: Stéphane Guisard (Los Cielos de America), TWAN Explanation: Makemake, a god in Easter Island mythology, may have smiled for a moment as clouds parted long enough to reveal this glimpse of July 11's total solar eclipse to skygazers. In the foreground of the dramatic scene, the island's famous large, monolithic statues (Moai) share a beachside view of the shimmering solar corona and the darkened daytime sky. Other opportunities to see the total phase of this eclipse of the Sun were also hard to come by. Defined by the dark part of the Moon's shadow, the path of totality tracked eastward across the southern Pacific Ocean, only making significant landfall at Mangaia (Cook Islands) and Easter Island (Isla de Pascua), ending shortly after reaching southern Chile and Argentina. But a partial eclipse phase could be enjoyed over a broader region, including many southern Pacific islands and wide swath of South America.

    Watu mara nyingi huzungumzia habari za kiama,lakini hawapendi kuona mazingira ya kuhuzunisha kama ya kiama.Apendae hivyo aangalie hii Los Cielos de América.
    Dunia hapo ni wazi iko kwenye huzuni kubwa kama kwamba imepigwa bomu kubwa na kupoteza watu wake wote.Waliobaki hawajuwani tena na wamepoteza matumaini.Wanamkumbuka Mungu tu ili awaokoe.
