What better place to spend the day, Plymouth, MA, waterfront. Especially on the “Great American Eclipse”, day. April 2024 will be the next one. I hope crickets will chirp and streetlights pop on during this one. Jackson, where were you on August 21, 2017 ?
There is no science in this world like physics. Nothing comes close to the precision with which physics enables you to understand the world around you. It’s the laws of physics that allow us to say exactly what time the sun is going to rise. What time the eclipse is going to begin. What time the eclipse is going to end. “Neil deGrasse Tyson”
If the sun were just a little bit bigger or the moon a bit farther away, total solar eclipses may never occur. But they do, and it turns out this celestial phenomenon that has changed human history, and our perspective of the universe, may be a sheer coincidence. So until 2024, REMEMBER: Looking directly at the sun, even when it is partially covered by the moon, can cause serious eye damage or blindness. NEVER look at a partial solar eclipse without proper eye protection.
