Congratulations Andy and Layla Gordon, on the birth of a Son, as yet unnamed, at 6:10pm GMT on Jan 09 2001.
Ignoring our helpful suggestions of names like "Flash", "Eldritch", "Djinn" and "Linus" they are still deciding on a name.
Most people agree that a black cat is an omen, although no one seems to agree if it's good or bad. The same can be said of a Total Lunar Eclipse.
The first eclipse of the moon of this Millenium began at 17:44 GMT, the baby was born at 18:10, the total eclipse began at 19:50. Go figure.
It is spooky, no?
