The Boh-clipse

Mr. Boh, seen above, is the mascot for National Bohemian beer, and a neon fixture on the Baltimore skyline. A few months ago, a friend in Baltimore posted this picture on his Facebook wall:

So, according to my calculations, the Boh-clipse will occur on March 19th, 2011 at around 20:08 EDT. I guess I’ll see what happens then.

 

EDIT APR 07 2011: No one I know was in Baltimore during the Bohclipse. Oh boy, more math.
