Whether you were enthralled by today’s eclipse or bummed out that you didn’t get to see it on its path of totality you will be glad to know that there are more than two dozen total solar eclipses to come over the next two decades. You just have to be in the right place at the right time is all. Click the image above to trace the when and the where. From Emily DeMarco in Science News: “The three lines of each path represent the northern, central and southern borders of the path of totality.” Go deep into it and explore your options!
As this short video explains – and perhaps you got a taste of this earlier today – what’s amazing about eclipses isn’t how rare they are, but how they make you feel. Short of being blasted into space inside a rocket or walking on the moon, there really is no circumstance in which a human being can find him/herself so umbilically attached to the chaotically ordered workings of time, space and the greater cosmos. So yeah, we’ll see you in either Mexico or Newfoundland on April 8th, 2024!
