If you haven’t heard of this event in America, you are clearly not even paying attention to the news.
Yes… I understand your sentiment about all the useless Trump news and all the partisan bickering going on in the government. We even miss out on important issues because they get overshadowed by Trump news. But at the very least, you have to pay attention to non-political news like the American Solar Eclipse of 2017.
Thanks to modern technology, there were quite a few YouTube Live feeds going on. So even though I was not in the path of totality for this eclipse I still got to experience the awesomeness that is a total eclipse (of the heart.)
