For many, solar eclipses are a very relaxing sight that helps them appreciate the beauty of nature. They don’t come around often, but when they do the sight is as beautiful and unique as it is rare. Solar eclipses are natural events that take place when the moon orbits itself between Earth and the Sun, blocking out sunlight. Eclipses can only be viewed from certain parts of the world and are sometimes called occultations.

Eclipses are able to occur because the distance between the Sun and the Earth is about 400 times the distance between the Moon and the Sun. The Sun’s diameter is approximately 400 times larger than the Moon’s. With all these factors in play, it is then possible for the Moon to give the illusion that it’s the same size as the Sun and effectively casts a large shadow across Earth.

There are a few various types of solar eclipses. Partial solar eclipses occur when the moon doesn’t line up perfectly with the Sun and some of the Sun’s light is still able to reach earth. In instances such as this, the Sun appears to wane the same way a crescent moon would. An annual solar eclipse happens when the Moon and Sun are lined up exactly but there’s some disparity in terms of distance between the planets. The Earth is either too far from the Moon or too close to the Sun.
Total solar eclipses are the most visually stunning of all, and also the rarest. In these cases, the moon completely covers the entire Sun when viewed properly. It’s essentially the same as it being night out when an area is affected by a “Totality”. It’s cool to see as well as disorienting, so people tend to make a big deal when a total eclipse comes to town.
Each year there are between two and five solar eclipses, drawing the attention of stargazers and space enthusiasts alike. They’re often brief, as the speed of the Moon as it moves across the Sun is about 1,400 miles per hour. The longest Totalities have been known to last up to seven and a half minutes, and only occur about every 18 months. For some space fans, a Totality is almost like a large competitive sporting match.
As it turns out, there’s supposed to be a total eclipse in 2017. For everything you need to know about watching this eclipse, read on.
I never want to have a roommate every again in my entire life. They smell, they are often naked, and they don’t have boundaries.
The following is a list of 13 reasons why I refuse to have a roommate ever again; aside from the fact that roommates are awful in general. I’m a true fan of solitude.
*NOTE: SOME OF THESE STORIES ARE ABOUT THE SAME ROOMMATE – I DIDN’T HAVE 13 CRAZY ROOMMATES (ALTHOUGH SOMETIMES I WONDER)*
Yah, you read that right. A couple of years ago my roommate was a complete and total wierdo. She was constantly accusing people of doing things that were intended to harm her in one way of another. This girl was the epitome of “the world is out to get me”. One weekend in particular she had a couple friends from home visiting, and they were staying in our tiny apartment with us. I was in my bedroom, which was connected to the kitchen, doing some studying when I heard my roommate start cooking breakfast with her friends. They were cooking for about 10 minutes when one of her friends asked if she could help herself to some orange juice, to which my roommate replied, “Yes, but grab the one in the back because the other one has butter in it” (Yes, ladies and gents – BUTTER). Her friend naturally was freaked out and asked why. My roommates answer was “Oh, I think she’s been drinking my orange juice, so I put butter in it”. Can you say crazy?
This roommate was also my cousin – I think it’s important to know that before we get into the story. She was my best friend for my entire life, and so when she moved to my city, we decided we would live together to save on rent! About halfway through the year she got a new boyfriend who was over all the time, and they would leave their dishes and garbage everywhere, so naturally I asked if she could keep it tidy, because it was getting gross (what an understatement). This was the start of WWIII because from this point on we didn’t get along. She stayed disgusting, but now wanted to make my life a living hell and decided she would destroy all of my condoms. Luckily I discovered it before I used any, but really… This kind of revenge is just uncouth.
In my first year of college I lived in a townhouse on campus with 5 other girls. I went to high school with one of them, one of them became my best friend, 2 of them were from the same town and were best friends, and then there was this one girl that got kicked out of her original townhouse because her roommates hated her, and we said it was fine if she lived with us. We were being kind, ok? Oh, the regret. Throughout the year we started to realize our dishes and utensils started to drop in numbers. It was fine because between the 6 of us we had enough dishes to get by, but it was still sort of odd. When this roommate finally moved out we went into her room to find all our dishes piled up in a tower – along with all of her caked on foods from the year.

The first month that will be touched on is Aries (March 21- April 20). The fear connected with Aries is the fear of losing loved ones. Aries don’t respond well to seeing long term relationships come to an end. However, it doesn’t just apply to relationships, it also applies to death of loved ones. Aries have a hard time dealing with the major losses in their life so if you know one going through a loss you may want to be more sensitive with them.
The fear of losing a loved one isn’t all bad. It means that Aries have strong qualities like being very caring and nurturing. They give a great amount of effort to their relationships because they cannot stand them coming to an end. This can help relationships thrive because when you have someone putting in a maximum effort then it provides some leeway to the other partner on bad days.
