Embracing the Darkness
Benjamin Hill

It should be noted that a partial eclipse pales in comparison to a total eclipse. It won’t even get dark. In fact, you probably wouldn’t even know it was occurring unless somebody told you. And you need to wear eclipse safety glasses at all times during a partial eclipse (during a total, you can take off the glasses during the very brief period of totality). Perhaps some of the teams outside the path of totality will plan something around the eclipse, but the incentive is definitely there for the teams within the path to capitalize.

Like what you read? Give National Eclipse a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
