Talking Aaaaaaaah! The Sun Is No More! For About Six Minutes.

There will be a solar eclipse very soon, and it's be the longest in the 21st Century.

Remember, kids: Never look directly at the Sun, and make sure you think good thoughts because otherwise the Sun will disappear forever!

"When it happens, there is this dissonance that is set up between what your body knows is supposed to be light and what your eyes are seeing -- it's suddenly gotten dark. It's a very, very strange feeling that some people have likened to a religious experience, and you get kind of addicted to that," said James Scheffler, a cardiologist.
