The last time we experienced a full solar eclipse was back in 1979. ABC News footage reveals a somewhat ominous concluding statement from news presenter Frank Reynolds:
“So that’s it, the last solar eclipse to be seen on this continent in this century,” Reynolds said. “As I said, not until Aug. 21, 2017, will another eclipse be visible from North America. “That’s 38 years from now. May the shadow of the moon fall on a world at peace.”
Today would also be the day to visit singer and funnyman Christina Bianco’s performance of Total Eclipse of the Heart as Gwen Stefani, Cher, Julie Andrews and Christina Aguilera. Hilarious!
