The limerick leader asked us to do up an article for them about the eclipse,
They put the entire article + 4 images onto page 4 of the weekend paper, it makes up most of the page.

AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME article!

Two minor comments .... are solar eclipses, on average, not around every 18 months or so and in contrast to the two per year cited in the article .... and there is a small typo with "Artic" ....
