Eclipse: The Celestial Phenomenon That Changed the Course of History
On Aug. 21, 2017, the United States will fall under the path of a total solar eclipse. The path of totality, where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun's atmosphere - the corona - can be seen, will stretch from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun's disk.

Eclipses provide unique opportunities for today's scientists to study such contrasting phenomena as the upper layers of the sun, the slowdown of our planet's spin rate, and the effects of celestial events on human psychology. In Eclipse, Duncan Steel expertly captures our continuing fascination with all manner of eclipses and provides the science behind them.
