The lions sleep… today. Yes it’s true. On the 3rd of November 2013 a total solar eclipse will cross Central Africa, and some adventurous GLORIA team members will take a walk on the wild East side of Turkana Lake in Kenya to record and broadcast the event live (see below for details). This UNESCO World Heritage Site is also known as the cradle of humanity. Our ancestors could not predict the occurrence of eclipses as we do. However, even armed with our scientific knowledge, the experience of an eclipse remains as spectacular to us as it must have been for them. The fact that this one is occurring during the year of maximum solar activity, holds the promise of a particularly lovely spectacle to the privileged watchers.
