Understand why the total solar eclipse experience is so unique that it compels people to chase for life (2012).

Seeing a total solar eclipse is often described as a once-in-a-lifetime experience. However, for many who have experienced totality, once-in-a-lifetime is simply not enough. They want more, and are willing to go to great lengths often at great expense to repeat the experience. What is it like to experience totality? What is it about the experience that motivates these eclipse chasers? Can eclipse chasing actually be described as an addiction?

An eclipse-chasing psychologist delves into the experiences of those who chase eclipses to reveal why a total solar eclipse is so powerful, and what motivates people to travel around the world to experience totality.
