Eclipses are perhaps the most spectacular celestial events of all.
During a lunar eclipse the full moon contain a luscious copper colour for a few hours, while solar eclipses—which can last just a few minutes—often leave onlookers scarred for life. In a good way! In fact, if you’ve ever witnessed a brief totality during a total solar eclipse when the world around you turns into twilight while you get to gawp at the Sun’s precious outer atmosphere—its bright white corona—you’ll know why there are thousands of dedicated eclipse chases who try to see as many as they can.
Trouble is, solar and lunar eclipse is don’t come around very often.
