إغماض العينين لن يغير في شيء، لا شيء سيتغيّر لمجرد أنك لا تريد أن تراه. بل، ستجد أن الأمر ازداد سوءًا في المرة التالية التي تنظر فيها.

Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

  • Translation: "Closing your eyes isn’t going to change anything. Nothing’s going to disappear just because you can’t see what’s going on. In fact, things will even be worse the next time you open your eyes."
(via wordsnquotes)


A ‘Ring of Fire’ solar eclipse is a rare phenomenon that occurs when the moon’s orbit is at its apogee: the part of its orbit farthest away from the Earth. Because the moon is so far away, it seems smaller than normal to the human eye. The result is that the moon doesn’t entirely block out our view of the sun, but leaves an “annulus,” or ring of sunlight glowing around it. Hence the term  “annular” eclipse rather than a “total” eclipse.
