Tales From The Shadow Of The Moon

Eclipse chasers tell us what it’s like to witness a total solar eclipse.

The August 21, 2017, total solar eclipse in the US will likely be the most-viewed totality in history and the first for a whole generation of Americans. But there is a small community of enthusiasts who have already seen 5, 12, even 30 total eclipses before. That’s because after their first eclipse, they were hooked, and now spend all of their vacation time and spare money chasing total solar eclipses around the world, with the solar system as their travel guide. We interviewed 9 of these eclipse veterans to find out what totality is like, what we should expect, and whether they have advice for first-timers.
