Sun Moon Earth: The History of Solar Eclipses from Omens of Doom to Einstein and Exoplanets by Tyler Nordgren
According to astronomer, Tyler Nordgren, the difference between whether you’re
inside or outside an eclipse’s path of totality is 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.
