What is a Total Solar Eclipse?
Have you ever experienced nighttime during daylight hours? A Total Solar Eclipse happens when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, completely blocking the face of the Sun. The sky will darken as if it were dawn or dusk, the temperature and wind will change and a change in animal behavior will be noted creating an experience that is unforgettable. This is the first total eclipse visible in our area since 1925, and the next one will not occur in our area until 2144!
