Tidbits of Arabic News translated into English

Tuesday, September 5, 2017


The BBC Arabic carried the August 21 eclipse live. They had lots of coverage of it, and sent their USA-based correspondent to Nashville to witness it.

The name of the correspondent is Luqman Ahmed. I really like him, because I've seen him now for so many years, and his voice and face and demeanor are comfortable and familiar. Here he is above at the height of totality.

And here below, cheesing really hard:

25 million Americans have traveled to witness the eclipse, he kept exclaiming. There's eclipses in other parts of the world, too, but the Americans are the most excited.

Look at that sky. And the glasses come back out.
