Mother Nature gave us a nice lesson on Butterfly Effect. How else we can relate an volcanic eruption and Eclipse Day. As you all know, the recent volcanic eruptions at Eyjafjallajökull has literally grounded all European flights. Because of this Daniel Megert could not catch his flight to India. He whats us to convey that it would have been his pleasure to interact with Eclipse community here. Hopefully, we will get another opportunity to catch up with him.
