Hello Everyone, Kathy here,  I just wanted to share an event that went on this past Saturday on July 19 in downtown Phoenix, AZ. It was the ribbon cutting for what is called the The Flagstaff Cool Zone. The purpose of the "Cool Zonw" is to remind Valley residents of how "cool" Flagstaff is. We've brought it to you in Phoenix.  Located in the heart of the Legends Entertainment District between Chase Field and U.S. Airways Arena, the Cool Zone is a needed respite from the heat of the summer.  With Flagstaff imagery and misters chilling the air, visitors are encouraged to take a "trip" to the Flagstaff Cool Zone, and make some plans for future visits to the north, plus snap a photo to share with your friends. So if you are visiting the Downtown Phoenix Area please stop by the Cool Zone and snap a picture of yourself at Meteor Crater.  For more information please go to #visitcool or you my visit www.flagstaffarizona.org/visitcool. Until next time......

Hello Everyone, Kathy here,  For those of you who have been tuning in to our Barringer Meteorite Crater Story, I apologize for the delay on the conclusion, I am making some updates to the conclusion and will be publishing it as soon as possible.  With our season fast approaching I have not been able to make those updates as fast as I have wanted to.  We are busy here at Meteor Crater and our visitors have been keeping me busy.  I look forward to get the conclusion up by the end of this week if time allows me to. Please keep checking back here with me for the conclusion.

I visited Meteor Crater in June of 2012 and I enjoyed the entire experience. It must be seen to appreciate the scale of the event which occurred here so many eons ago. I will be going back as often as possible and I would gladly drive 1000 miles out of my way to see again and again. Outstanding management and staff. They're passionate about what they share and it is contagious. Thank You, Kevin Maloney

Hello Everyone, Kathy here with some exciting science news.  Next Tuesday morning, April 14th, the moon will be eclipsed by Earth's shadow.  This total lunar eclipse will be visible across the Western Hemisphere.  The total phase will last 78 minutes, beginning at 3:06 a.m. EDT and ending at 4:24 a.m. EDT.  The moon will just be rising in the western Pacific, so only the last half of the eclipse will be visible there.  In much of Europe and Africa, the moon will be setting, so there won't be much, if anything, to see.  On April 29th, the Southern Hemisphere will be treated to a rare type of solar eclipse.  In all, four exlipses will occur this year, two lunar and two solar.  Tuesday's lunar eclipse may damage a NASA spacecraft that's been circling the moon since fall.  But no worries:  it's near the end of its mission.  Thanks  for joining me today, and any of you are able to catch this event please leave me a comment.  Until next time, Kathy signing out. source:  MSN science news
