First series of photographs of solar eclipse

In 1860, a series of photographs of a total solar eclipse was made by Warren De la Rue (1815-1889) in Spain, and by Father Angelo Secchi at another location 500-km away. The value of photography as a means of investigating the solar appendages was demonstrated when the images were compared at various stages of the eclipse. The moon was clearly seen to advance over the “red protuberances” and settle forever that they belonged to the sun and and not the moon.

Preposition

A small-town country boy gets a scholarship to Harvard. During his first week on campus, when he's still learning to get around the place, he's trying to find the library to meet up with a study group. While wandering around, he sees an older, distinguished-looking man walking by. Figuring that the man is a professor, or otherwise associated with the school, he decides to ask him for directions.

"Excuse me," he asks, "do you know where the library is at?"

The man stops, looks at him, and sniffs, "Son, at Harvard we do not end a sentence with a preposition".

"OK. Do you know where the library is at, asshole?"
