What If It's Cloudy? How Rare Is A Total Solar Eclipse? Questions Abound Ahead Of Next Monday
Bernard Arghiere of the Astronomy Club of Asheville has been speaking at events all across Western North Carolina ahead of the total solar eclipse that will pass through the region on August 21st. He says the most common question he gets is when should people take off their special eclipse glasses during the event to see it. But there are plenty of other queries too, and Arghiere joined BPR's Matt Bush to answer them, such as how rare are total eclipses (not really he says...there will be 68 of them this century...you just have to travel much, much further to see them).
