If you're like me you are fascinated with space and all of the unanswered questions.  Are we alone in the universe?  Are there solar systems like ours?  If we aren't alone, is there a possibility there is life much like our own?  At this point we only have scientific evidence and the ability to look at the stars and beyond with telescopes and spacecrafts.  However, for most people we can only see what our eyes can see and one of those opportunities is coming up next month.

According to msn.com, the only total eclipse of the year is happening on July 2nd.  But unlike the last eclipse not much of North America will experience it to the fullest.  The area of the world that will experience day turning into night will be areas of South America.  Nevertheless, with the right equipment the average American will get will get something out of it.
