I had heard something about this on NPR recently, perhaps a partial eclipse or something like that. Today I was a walkin' down the street, and their was a young woman with the special glasses you use to look at the sun. They did not cover my glasses in their entirety, so I didn't know how safe it was. She said I'd see a little black spot on the sun, but later in the day would be even a better time to look. I couldn't see it, but it was cool nonetheless.
(We won't mention that immediately after this random encounter, I saw a medium sized loose dog that decided to tour Mountain Town. I thought it was going to be killed by the train somehow it knew to wait. It appears it crossed a major highway. This same woman was running after it, to no avail, and gave up. I called the police hoping it wouldn't get killed-but kept my name as anonymous)
