Call it divine intervention, call it astrophysics, call it a handshake-deal with Apollo (the Sun god, not the defunct printer company).  Neither recession nor planetary alignment can slow us down.

NASA has a very cool video that shows the path of today’s umbra and penumbra shadows (umbra is the part in “total eclipse”).

And if you thought that was cool, wait until you see v3.0 — coming soon to our valued subscribers around the world (even the parts without sun!)
