News and Events, Questions and Answers

May 20 2012 Annular Eclipse Of The Sun – China To Texas - Mark your calendar for tomorrow, Sunday, May 20, 2012. If you’re at just the right place in the western United States in the late afternoon/early evening, you can watch an annular (ring) eclipse of the sun. It will be the first annular eclipse to take place in the mainland United States since May 10, 1994, and the next one won’t come until October 14, 2023.
An annular eclipse happens whenever the new moon swings directly in front of the sun, blocking out all but the outer portion of the solar disk from view. This kind of eclipse presents an apparent ring of fire, really the outer edge of the sun, around the black disk of the moon in the daytime sky at mid-eclipse.

A partial eclipse will be visible in Baja California Sur. Because the eclipse will occur early in the evening and lower to the Western horizon, find a vantage point not blocked by trees or mountains to the West. You will also need suitable eye protection to view the eclipse directly. Sunglasses won't prevent your eyes getting burned. A piece of #14 welding glass will work. - The Baja Western Onion

"Deadly Descent" Caving Program At Hotel Casa Tota - Please join us Saturday May 19, 7PM at La Santeña Restaurant and Cantina. We are hosting a special program, "Deadly Descent." From the mouth of Clem Akins, presenter:

"The video takes about 40 minutes to show. It’s a high-energy reality TV show made for Discovery Science. This show is the pilot episode. The series was not picked up (possibly because it was deemed too dangerous!) so this single show is the only one of its kind. It turned into a genuine emergency, which is when I got involved in the video part of the show. My role was supposed to be just a safety consultant, under the hope that nothing would go wrong. Then, two of the local PR cavers failed to return..."
