Right now my fabulous advisees are running today advisory (10/5/2020). I am hoping that by the time this is opened in June that we will all be on campus and having something close to regular school. My guess is that Joe Biden will be president or perhaps Kamala Harris if Joe Biden's health fails him between now and then. This period of remote learning is super challenging for so many, and I am grateful to have an excellent job and to get to work with amazing young people like my advisees. My greatest hope is that my advisees get to completely enjoy their senior year including all the celebratory rights of passage. By the time I open this, I should finally have a smart phone. I will have joined the 21st century. Okay, I predict the Dow Jones average will be at 22,500 when I open this. Today it is hovering around 28,000. Until June!

hen does an eclipse take place? An eclipse takes place when one heavenly body such as a moon or planet moves into the shadow of another heavenly body. On Earth, we can experience two kinds of eclipses: solar eclipses and lunar eclipses.
There are three kinds of lunar eclipses: total, partial, and penumbral. A total lunar eclipse occurs when Earth's umbra covers the Moon's entire surface. A partial lunar eclipse occurs when only part of the Moon's surface is obscured by Earth's umbra.
When the Moon travels through the faint penumbral portion of Earth's shadow a penumbral lunar eclipse happens. At least two partial lunar eclipses happen every year, but total lunar eclipses are rare. However, in 2021 we are going to witness a total lunar eclipse.
