Description
 
Through recorded history, humanity has exhibited a changing response to the phenomenon of a solar eclipse. Today astronomers can calculate the exact path across the globe which the moonís shadow will track during a solar eclipse. As millions encamp for the spectacle, space agency satellites & mountain-top observatories will study the corona, flares & magnetosphere of the sun as the 125-mile wide black patch zooms along the ground at almost 2,000 mph. The book also shows how astronomer Norman Lockyer named the element Helium from the spectra of the eclipsed sun & how Arthur Eddington gave the first proof of Einsteinís General Theory of Relativity from the bending of sunlight during the African eclipse of 1919.
