According to astronomer Tyler Nordgren, the difference between whether you’re
inside or outside an eclipse’s path of totality is literally the difference between day
and night. In Sun Moon Earth, Nordgren explores the “multisensory strangeness of
this most unnatural of natural events.” He takes readers around the world to show
how different cultures have interpreted eclipses, and how perceptions of the
eclipse—from fearsome omen to scientific study and tourist attraction—have
changed over the years. Sun Moon Earth contains a helpful list of eclipse resources,
full-color photographs and illustrations, and a detailed map of the total solar eclipse path on August 21, 2017.
