Solar eclipse tomorrow

It won't pass over the part of Canada where I am, but nevertheless, it'll be visible from this country! NASA has organized a lot of cool solar eclipse resources. My favorite is this animation:
You can see how the shadow of the moon passes over our spherical world, in a way that is muddled when projected onto our flat maps.

This post's theme word: envisage, "to form a mental image of something that is not present or is not the case." When I first heard "envisage," I thought it was a fake word meant to sound like "envision," but fancier.
