How to Watch the Eclipse and/or Burn Your Eyes Out, Both Seem Like Solid Ideas This Week (The Loop / Golf Digest)

.

The Loop / Golf Digest — The “Great American Eclipse,” a celestial event of singular majesty that will take place Monday, Aug. 21. And it’s a big deal because it’s a total eclipse, which for large swaths of America will blot out the sun, briefly create an artificial night and herald the beginning of the end of days. (Ha! Just kidding! Unless you’re in Kentucky, then you’re probably on board.) An eclipse hasn’t crossed the continental United States since June 8, 1918, so people are getting really, really excited about this.

    I think the last total one seen in the U.S. in 1918 has to be wrong because I remember watching an old cowboy movie about 50 years ago that had a total eclipse of the sun featured in it. And that kept the Indians from harming the cowboy. The cowboy knew it was going to happen; the Indians didn’t, so they believed he had some magical powers that could blacken the sun! And, they all looked straight at it and walked away later with no harm to their eyes. Now you know that movie had to be true, snicker, even though I thought at the time the Indians were the ones most likely to know about things like that.

    Great article, Jeff, as usual!
