A total solar eclipse occurs when the New Moon swings between the Sun and Earth and there will be a dark shadow cast upon the earth. This showing effect is called the umbra and happens during a full solar eclipse which can become almost as dark as night. Myrtle Beach will experience a 99% total eclipse and from Pawleys Island southward to Charleston this area will be covered by the moon 100% and will reach its peak around 2:45 Monday afternoon August 21, 2017. A website called Eclipse 101 has a breakdown of the path of the solar eclipse form each state.
From the picture above you see a darkened Sun with the glow of the solar corona extending out to space, this phenomenon is call “Bailey’s Beads”. It often appears as sunlight shines out through the valleys of the moon’s surface. If the Sun is active, observers can also see solar prominences, loops, and flares during totality.
Can you name this tune:
“Once upon a time I was falling in love, But now I’m falling apart. And there’s nothing I can do, A total eclipse of the heart. Once upon a time there was light in my life, But now there’s only love in the dark. Nothing I can, A total eclipse of the heart.”
What a heartfelt 80’s song sung by Bonnie Tyler “Total Eclipse of the Heart” to commemorate our total eclipse coming up next week and if you ever find yourself in the dark when buying or selling a home, Contact Us!.
