Full solar eclipses don’t happen very often. One just did on July 22nd.

Some of my favorites are not embeddable from Flickr, like this one from Hong Kong, this one from Guam, and this one from Manila in The Philippines.

Hat tip to CNN.

Would your students enjoy doing a Google Earth project, embedding and geo-tagging these images and others? If you do a project like this or learn of someone else who has done/does one, please let me know!
