An eclipse takes place when Earth or the moon passes through a shadow of another heavenly body.
After the August 21, 2017 eclipse, the next total solar eclipse visible from North America will be April 8, 2024.
There are four different types of solar eclipse, namely Partial eclipse, Annular eclipse, Total Eclipse and Hybrid Eclipse.
Another total solar eclipse will be visible in the United States on April 8, 2024. The total eclipse will be visible in Mexico, the central US and east Canada. Cities like Austin, Texas; Dallas; Little Rock, Arkansas; Indianapolis; Toledo, Cleveland and Akron, Ohio; Buffalo and Rochester, New York; Montpelier, Vermont; and Montreal will be directly in the path of totality.
There are between 2 and 5 solar eclipses every year, each one visible only in a limited area.
There is no danger to the eye in looking directly at a total solar eclipse. However; looking directly at the smallest part of a partial eclipse, including any annular eclipse, is very dangerous and can result in retinal damage.
The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses”
Total Eclipse by Klaus Nomi, this song relates to the eclipse because the song is called, Total Eclipse.
The Greeks believed that when an eclipse happened, it meant that the gods were angry/upset and a horrible event was going to happen.
The eclipse will change the direction of the wind and the temperature drops.
