Mask of the Sun
The Science, History and Forgotten Lore of EclipsesLarge Print - 2017
What do Virginia Woolf, the rotation of hurricanes, Babylonian kings and Einstein's General Theory of Relativity all have in common? Eclipses. Always spectacular and, today, precisely predicable, eclipses have allowed us to know when the first Olympic games were played and, long before the first space probe, that the Moon was covered by dust. Eclipses are a amazing phenomena -- unique to Earth -- that have provided the key to much of what we now know and understand about the sun, our moon, gravity, and the workings of the universe.
