Eclipse of the sun

2017-08-31 06:00

THE great American eclipse cast a 113 km wide path of totality from Oregon to South Carolina at 10.16 am Oregon time, taking one hour and 33 minutes to pass.

We in SA only experienced a partial eclipse, but as we are nine hours ahead of Oregon time, it was a non-event for everyone here.

We might not have experienced any meaningful eclipse in SA but we did get a total eclipse on December 4, 2002, and we are going through a total eclipse of President Jacob Zuma support that has cast a path of totality all the way from Nkandla to the Gupta mansion in Saxonwold.
