Why a total solar eclipse is a MUST-SEE event!

The CRAM Podcast ~ Extraordinary Ideas Unleashed

04-04-2024 • 39 mins

It’s a once in a lifetime event:  a mesmerizing, soul-stirring experience. At any given point on earth, the ability to see a total solar eclipse happens only once every three to four hundred years.

And on April 8, 2024, at least 30 million people will be able to experience it.  They’ll be plunged into darkness as the moon completely blocks the sun.  Even if you’re not going to experience the eclipse, it’s a fascinating journey of discovery to hear science writer Andrew Fazekas talk about it.

Andrew explains what we’ll see, the science and history around solar eclipses, and what makes them unique and unforgettable.
