The Rare 'Ring of Fire' Eclipse Will Be Visible for a Short Window Tomorrow

Western Journal

Published

Back in 2017, I drove hours to rural Idaho to witness the last total solar eclipse to visit the U.S. When I watch the video I made, I’m a bit embarrassed because I kind of lost my mind.

The most amazing thing was that because I was within the 70-mile band where the eclipse was total, for about three and a half minutes, I could actually watch it with the naked eye.

It was one of the most amazing, surreal moments of my life.

It got dark, the animals grew quiet and it got surprisingly cold.

And, I could see the sun’s corona, which is usually invisible. It was breathtaking.

Tomorrow’s Solar Eclipse Won’t Be Total

The solar eclipse expected to appear tomorrow morning in the Northern Hemisphere will feature a rare “ring of fire,” a phenomenon that will occur when the moon passes between the Earth and the sun, according to CBS News.

NASA reported that unless you live in parts of Canada, Greenland, the Arctic Ocean or Siberia, you won’t experience the total eclipse.

IMPORTANT: Because it won’t be a total eclipse in the U.S., you must not look at it directly with the naked eye. Sunglasses will be of no help. The only safe way to actually view it is through a solar filter, or “eclipse glasses.”

The sun will experience its partial eclipse at 6:53 a.m. EDT, according to CBS, so only the eastern half of the U.S. will be able to see it.

If you have solar filter eyeglasses, you can look to the northeast at that time to experience the partial eclipse. Otherwise, do not look up, but rather enjoy the sudden darkness and drop in temperature.

The 1-2-3’s of Solar Eclipses

NASA estimates that there is one total solar eclipse approximately every 18 months, but they usually happen over the ocean.

They are a breathtakingly beautiful astronomical phenomenon that occur when the moon’s orbit brings it directly between the sun and Earth.

But because the moon is so much smaller than the earth, only a very small part of its shadow falls on the earth. Fortunately, it is a lot closer, which helps increase its size.

There is a small band on the earth — about 70 miles wide — where the totality of the eclipse allows a person to observe it with the naked eye for a few minutes. In 2017, I was able to see it for three and a half minutes.

Next Full Eclipse in the U.S.

The next full solar eclipse that America will experience won’t occur until April 8, 2024. The total eclipse will start in Texas, then make its way diagonally over Ohio before ending in Maine.

Be sure to put this date in your calendar, and make plans for a road trip.

It’s an experience you won’t want to miss.

'The View' Co-Hosts Who Tested Positive for COVID Didn't Even Have It

Western Journal

Published

on

A disturbing incident on ABC’s “The View” spotlights an alarming problem with current coronavirus protocols.

On Friday — just moments before Vice President Kamala Harris was scheduled to appear in person — “The View” co-hosts Ana Navarro and Sunny Hostin were abruptly rushed off stage amid revelations that they had tested positive for COVID-19.

Both Navarro and Hostin are vaccinated.

The Harris interview, which was supposed to be on-set, was changed to a remote interview following an awkward delay.

Insiders at the left-wing talk show told the New York Post on Sunday that both Hostin and Navarro subsequently tested negative, ruling their first tests a false positive.

“They were pissed because everyone’s been waiting for this big interview for two weeks now, and then it was derailed because of a false positive,” an insider said.

A second source said the incident was especially shocking because producers announced the hosts’ test results on air without their permission.

Not only is that embarrassing, but it’s also unethical to reveal someone’s health issues on national television without their express consent.

“It was not OK. They made the decision to reveal their COVID-19 results in the heat of the moment when they should’ve gone to commercial break,” a second insider told the Post.

“They could’ve stopped and thought about how to handle it, as opposed to being crazy on the air and running around like chickens with their heads cut off,” the source said.

On Saturday, Navarro tweeted that she had tested negative for a third time. This indicates that her initial positive test result on Friday was indeed a false-positive.

Hostin had not commented on the incident, but she and Navarro were back in the studio on Monday.

At the start of Monday’s show, co-host Joy Behar announced that both tests had turned out to be false positives and everyone is “safe, healthy and COVID-free.”

The show’s executive producer, Brian Teta, issued an apology to Navarro and Hostin.

“The View” hosts and staff are tested for the coronavirus multiple times a week. It’s unclear why this measure is necessary when they’re all supposedly vaccinated.

However, the shocking incident from Friday has enraged some employees, who slammed ABC’s sloppy testing protocol as an “epic fail.”

“It was so crazy,” one insider told the Post. “Nobody knew what was going on. Everyone at ABC had a different answer about what was going on.”

The Food and Drug Administration has warned that false-positive results do occur with COVID-19 tests.

“The FDA is aware of reports of false positive results associated with antigen tests used in nursing homes and other settings,” the agency revealed in November 2020.

It issued another warning about false-positive tests eight months later in July.

The alarming regularity of false positives is worrisome because it suggests that infection rates are being artificially inflated.

This stokes public panic and suggests that we’re not being told the truth about the pandemic and the actions taken to fight it.

One Twitter user wrote: “So proof that the number of positive cases is most likely inflated? How many people got one test and went home to quarantine and never questioned it?”

Conservative commentator Christian Walker mocked the delicious irony of the vaccinated co-hosts of “The View” testing positive “after screaming about how the unvaccinated are super spreaders.”

Janice Dean, Fox News’ senior meteorologist, was stunned that “The View” producers apparently announced Navarro and Hostin’s test results without their express consent.

This farcical incident underscores that the fearmongering being fomented by Democrats and their media puppets can boomerang on even the most virtue-signaling COVID alarmists, such as Navarro and Hostin.

In other words, self-righteous vaxxers who attack Americans because they’re unwilling to submit to oppressive vaccine passports are not exempt from becoming victims of left-wing hysteria.

Former Marine Allegedly Kills Deputy, Manhunt Underway Amid Fears His Training Gives Him an Edge

Western Journal

Published

A Florida deputy died Sunday, two days after he was shot during a traffic stop.

In response to the death of Deputy Joshua Moyers, 29, a Blue Alert has been issued in Florida’s Nassau County for Patrick McDowell, a former Marine suspected of shooting Moyers during a traffic stop early Friday morning just north of Jacksonville, according to WBFS-TV.

Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper said doctors tried to save Moyers, who was shot in the face and back, but “there was just nothing they could do for Josh.” On Saturday, Leeper said Moyers would not survive, but was being kept alive until his organs could be donated.

McDowell, 35, has been on the run ever since. Some say finding McDowell could result in even more death.

“I know he was military trained, and he was a very good student, very professional. I didn’t know anything negative about him,” weapons instructor Del Angelo, who trained McDowell as a security guard, told WJXT-TV.

“We just trained him basically for security response and how to use a handgun for self-defense or for protecting an area and he was very accomplished in his use of a handgun.”

Angelo said he thinks McDowell will make it in the woods.


“He’s very much a survivalist and he’s been military trained on survival and weapons use. So he’s very accomplished at survival and being unrecognized,” he said. “He can’t change his appearance but he can sure hide well and know how to stay out of people’s line of sight.”

According to WJXT, McCowell served in the Marines from 2005 to 2009, deploying twice as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He served in the Marine Corps Reserve from 2009 to 2013, WJXT reported.

Marine veteran Dallas Harpe, a Nassau County resident, said the hunt for McDowell might take some time.

“A man could survive in the woods with the training that he’s got up to 30 days or so,” said Harpe, a small arms and rifle instructor, according to WJXT-TV.

“The most important part of the basic training that would be helping him is when you’re going through infantry training, you’re taught to camouflage yourself, blend in with your surroundings. You’re taught discipline where you can remain absolutely still no matter what’s going on around you and the ability to move quietly through the woods,” said Harpe.

“It looks like there’s a lot of wetlands, so a man could slip through where it’s wet and his scent would be lost to the dogs and that would help him hide. If he walks through water, they’ll lose the scent,” he said.

Police are using heat-seeking technology, helicopters and drones in the hunt.

The technology could defeat training, Harpe said.

“You could have all the training in the world, but you can’t hide your body heat from heat sensors unless you have special material, and I doubt that he has because of the way that he entered the woods,” said Harpe.

A flashlight and a hat believed to belong to McDowell have been found, WJXT reported.

Police organizations are offering more than $50,000 for information the leads to McDowell’s arrest, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
