For the first time since February 26, 1979 , there will be a total eclipse of the sun on Monday August 21.  If you miss it you’ll have to wait until October 14, 2023 for the next one.

While the total eclipse will not be visible in Tuscaloosa, but it can be still be observed as a partial solar eclipse  where the Moon covers a large portion of the Sun.  The eclipse should begin at noon on Monday with the maximum effect expected at 1:38pm.

A woman in Dallas recently asked the Perot Museum of Nature and Science if they could move their solar eclipse party to the weekend. She said; "Can it be done on the weekend?"

There’s also a man looking to take advantage of the event.  He recently posted a Craigslist ad looking for a woman to conceive his child during the solar eclipse.  The weird ad read": “I am 40 years of age, Caucasian male from Europe. My heritage is strong and pure. My looks, instincts, knowledge and strength is 100% pure and 100% lethal. I am looking for a worthy female with strong genes, beauty and smarts. To join me – to experience the totality eclipse in Oregon. If we have chemistry, I would like for us to make love while the eclipse is happening. We will conceive a child that will be on the next level of human evolution. In a brief moment of ecstasy, we will understand everything, and together, create a new universe. Full of love.”
