It's not just the total darkness, but the incredible sensation as temperatures plunge that makes this a remarkable event.
The Great American Solar Eclipse is almost among us, and if you thought that the solar eclipse was just a couple minutes of daytime turning to night, think again, because it’s a lot weirder than that. There’s a reason why many describe a total solar eclipse as a once in a lifetime experience, and it’s because of the other worldly sensation that the solar eclipse brings.
It’s not just the darkness, but rather the fact that the temperature could plunge as much as 30 degrees during the span of time. It’s an incredible sensation that some have likened to being touched by space itself. And considering the fact that the last one in the United States was 40 years ago, it’s important to remember just how rare it is to get this experience here.
That’s why millions are likely to travel to the narrow 70 mile wide band of totality running from Oregon to South Carolina, and why you should consider doing it too.
