Wednesday, February 14, 1934

Last night I went over to church. Had choir practice. Also we talked about the Valentine party.

Solar Eclipse of February 14, 1934
Duration: 2m 53s
Coordinates: 13.2N 161.7E

A total solar eclipse occurred on February 14, 1934. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes
 between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partially obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer
on Earth. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's apparent diameter is larger than the Sun, blocking
 all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness. Totality occurs in a narrow path across the surface of the
Earth, while a partial solar eclipse will be visible over a region thousands of kilometres wide.
