Passover is a time for questions, except questions about whether it actually happened or not. It is also a time for children, except Egyptian children whom the Invisible Magic Friend decided to slaughter.

One of my enduring memories was of the 1999 eclipse that I viewed from Romania. The thing that struck me most was that most photos show close ups of the eclipsed sun. The real magic of the event only becomes apparent when you see it in the context of the landscape. I'll try and hunt down some old photos of this and scan them in. In the meantime, there's this superb picture from Svalbard, Norway, who were a bit luckier than the residents of the Faroe Islands (or for that matter, Southend, where it just got a bit gloomier than it had before).

What young people really need is an Invisible Magic Friend. I can't think of anything more guaranteed to bring them back to sanity.
