“Solar eclipses grab your soul and don’t let go.”

UPDATE – July 7, 2019 Albuquerque, New Mexico – On July 2, 2019, at 3:22 PM EDT (19:22 GMT), the moon’s shadow will cover the sun over most of South America. The longest totality lasted 2 minutes and 30 seconds at some points on a narrow 125-mile-wide path from La Serena, Chile, to a little south of Buenos Aires, Argentina. That’s when daylight dramatically faded down to darkness and the sun’s corona pulsed around the moon’s shadow.

I saw the August 21, 2017, Great American Eclipse from the mountains in Idaho and when the fade began, the ground took on a greenish color and in seconds there was a rush of air in an eclipse breeze as the temperature began to drop. I heard one astronomer before the breathtaking phenomenon say, “Solar eclipses grab your soul and don’t let go.”
