The next solar eclipse takes place between Tuesday and Wednesday… but we won’t be able to see it. The eclipse will be visible to people living along an area of the Pacific Ocean… like Indonesia, Australia, China, Japan and Hawaii and Alaska. On average, we experience a solar eclipse somewhere on earth twice a year.

Lady Gaga hanging out on a beach and then going swimming would not be that big of a deal… unless it’s Chicago and it’s March. Gaga and her fiance’, “Chicago Fire” actor Taylor Kinney, were among a group who jumped into Lake Michigan as part of a fundraiser for Special Olympics. The air temperature was about 40 degrees, which was positively balmy compared to last year, when Lady Gaga and Kinney took the polar plunge in 20-degree weather.
