I found some things about what the solar eclipse does to your eyes. Your eyes naturally get a little bit smaller to let in less light and protect your eyes. When you look at something super bright, like the solar eclipse, your eyes can't handle it.
Out of all the sites I looked at this one was the best. It was worded in a very unique way and I found it very easy and helpful to read. The solar eclipse is when there is a new moon and it is between the earth and the sun. It also explained that it might not happen every month because the angle and the way it's lined up isn't precise enough to make an eclipse.
This article really interested me, it was all about how the animals react to a solar eclipse. I found out that birds will stop singing, bees will go to their hives, and that spiders will take down their webs to rebuild it when the sun reappears. Luckily pets like dogs and cats will be less affected than wildlife.
This site has tons of facts about the upcoming solar eclipse but one just happened to catch my eye. It turns out the temperature could drop 10-15 degrees during the solar eclipse. Another interesting thing was the longest duration of a total solar eclipse was 7 minutes and 32 seconds. The next time the totality will approach 7 minutes is in June 2132
