The 2024 Solar Eclipse

The eclipse in the above video is actually a partial, annular (ring of fire) eclipse. The total eclipse that we will witness in 2024 will be very different. The sun will be black for approximately four minutes. In the path of totality, the temperature will drop 10 degrees or more, and midday will be reduced to twilight! Some of the brighter stars may even be visible on this rare occasion. It will be a fascinating sight to behold.
