  • Total Solar Eclipse: Live from Turkey, March 29, 2006. This site was just a few miles from where we were in Monavgat. The day after the eclipse we went there to buy souvenirs and climb these ruins. The hotel they show and recommend was very much like ours in Monavgat, but our travel agent had trouble booking one in Side, so I booked Monavgat.

  • Index of Exploratorium Site on the March 29, 2006 Total Eclipse.

  • Petroglyphs, rock drawings, and their meanings Site talks about possible records of total eclipse of the sun at Chaco. Many of the petroglyphs are in spiral shape. This gives some clue to the meaning of the spiral in petroglyphs.


  • Total Solar Eclipse of 2006 March 29 F.Espenak and J.Anderson: NASA/TP 2004 212762. On a NASA Website. Good discussion of a total eclipse at an educated reader level. Not for children, though I'll try to get one up for children soon. jeanne

    Discussion Questions

    1. How does all this relate to taking social, economic, environmental, and political issues into our communities to bring awareness of current events?

      See Dundee Satellite Station Images - for Paper for Visual Sociology.

    2. Why would a sociology department want to emphasize satellite pictures of our earth, eclipses, satellite weather maps, etc.?

      Because all these things bring important earth and environment-related issues to our attention in ways that we can all understand them. That makes us all more knowledgeable and aware, a good thing for illocutionary discourse.
