“This is a much bigger deal than you think!”

The American total eclipse is coming up fast, just over six weeks away. We’ll be trying to go four-for-four, watching from our vantage point in Georgia. Here is a nice, long piece here that tries to explain why eclipses are such a big deal to those who seek them out.

This video covers the period just before, during and just after totality at Svalbard during the March 2015 eclipse. If you’re in a hurry, skip to just before the two-minute mark to see the onset of totality.
