I am excited for eclipses.
http://www.sydneyobservatory.com.au/astronomy/upcoming_sky_events.asp

Next week in India there is going to be a full solar eclipse lasting an unusually long six minutes. Excitement! I wish I could go.

HOWEVER, I am comforted by the thought that in November 2012, there will be a full eclipse just after sunrise up in Cairns, in North Queensland. I shall be in attendance!

On top of that, at 2pm on the 22nd of July 2028, something truly amazing is going to happen. There will be a total solar eclipse DIRECTLY over Sydney. Eclipses over major cities are rare; this one carves a line literally through the CBD. The crowds are going to be absolutely epic. It's going to pass, in fact, directly over the Disney studio where I used to work. However, I'll be a couple of kilometers down the road at the waterfront with everyone else, trying to get a snap of the Harbour Bridge or the Opera House in the eerie darkness of totality.

It's going to look like the end of the world.

I second this, I had a customer last night at work who assured me of the fact.

Also that aliens have visited but They're Covering It Up.

His analogy of "have you ever seen a bacterium?" fell flat, though, as I did microbiology at uni. :D

They know ahead of time they'll be in QLD in 2028?? Or more to the point, what makes you think you'll still be with them by then? You'll be like 39 years old. ;)
