You may have heard that a total solar eclipse is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. But why would an astronomical event be of interest to you?

This book describes what it is like to experience one of nature’s most spectacular events, using the personal stories of people like you. By being in the right place at the right time, these individuals shuddered with fear and anticipation as the light dimmed, the temperature dropped, and then suddenly, their world plunged into an eerie darkness. They gazed in awe at the eclipsed Sun, feeling connected and unexpectedly gaining new life insights.

After reading these personal stories, you will understand why you must get into the path of totality to experience a total solar eclipse at least once in your life. But be warned – once may not be enough.
