I found this information significant, because while it's already known that looking at the sun with unprotected eyes can damage your retinas and even cause blindness, this website clearly explains the exact effects of solar retinopathy. It also explains that no matter how long you look at the eclipse, from one quick glance to roughly the whole two minutes it's happening, you will still suffer eye damage. Obviously the longer you look the more damage it will do to your eyes but it will still harm you regardless.
What I find interesting about this article and photo, is the article shows how throughout time solar eclipses have been significant in many cultures both good and bad. The interesting thing about the photo is its a very unique 360 degree illustration showing many different interpretations and beliefs of ancient people such as the moon covering the sun being interpreted as the dragon destroying the sun piece by piece. It also speaks of how these cultures tried to put an end to the solar eclipse such as the Chippewa shooting flaming arrows into the sky or the Mayans eating a certain type of snake.
This article and video are significant because they fully explain solar eclipses, the upcoming eclipse, and the odd things that can happen such as a rainbow corona or shadow bands moving across the ground. The video also shows the complete path of the total solar eclipse and where only some of it will be seen and how much will be seen from that location. It also stated that according to recent research the upcoming eclipse will be the most watched eclipse in all of history and how people will be traveling all across the country to try to be in the path of the total solar eclipse.
Solar eclipses were historically viewed as omens that bring about death and destruction and people in many ancient civilizations. I find it significant because it shows how long people have found solar eclipses to be something special and many facts about the history of solar eclipses dating back to even 2500 BCE
