-- Eclipse of the heart, eclipse of the moon, eclipse of the sun -- same diff! So at 2:55 a.m. PST tonight, there's going to be a total
lunar solar [do a global change on this one, readers!] eclipse. Problem is, the eclipse is only visible in South America and Europe. What's a Bonnie Tyler fan to do?
Well, the Exploratorium's come to the rescue! Local science fans who like to stay up late can check out the Exploratorium's live webcast of the eclipse -- or if you're in the mood for a pajama party, the Exploratorium will be open for partying all night, and broadcasting footage from a telescope they've hooked up in Turkey that'll be recording the whole event (from a Roman amphitheater, no less.) Since the eclipse is traveling over Brazil, the Exploratorium is featuring capoiera dancers, and Turkish dancers will perform too.
Tickets are $15 adults, $10 kids, and $8 members, and will be on sale until either 11:00 p.m. or 2:00 a.m. (it's unclear from the materials we received -- maybe to be safe, reserve in advance at 415-561-0308.) And after the moon comes back, go to the 24-hour IHOP on Lombard to celebrate!Turn around, bright eyes.....
