This week on ListAKA, due to popular demand (actually more of a couple of requests) we bring you some of the best pictures of the recent 2017 solar eclipse.
A solar eclipse is when the moon covers the sun’s view from Earth. Little do we know that an eclipse actually transpires somewhere on Earth every 18 months. However, a total (also called totality) solar eclipse wherein the moon completely covers the sun and block it from view can only happen in one singular place every 360 to 410 years on an average.
Viewing an eclipse can be dangerous. The effect of looking directly at the sun even if it’s partially covered or even if the rays don’t seem to be that strong due an event of an eclipse is the same as looking at it directly on a normal day. Because the retina doesn’t really feel pain, you can look at the sun directly, think it has no effect but then after a few hours, that’s when you might start to notice any damage to your eyesight.
In line with the fact stated above, several Americans are still able to get a remembrance of the recent 2017 Total Solar Eclipse by using the solar filter on their cameras. Below are some of the best pictures of the recent 2017 solar eclipse that were taken from various states across US and from Canada.
