I will be going into Wyoming for the Great American Eclipse. My friend in Colorado, who will be accompanying me on this adventure, says radio reports are predicting the state of Wyoming's population will double for this event.

FYI, Wyoming's population is a mere 586k souls. New York City's population is 8.5 million souls.

The solar eclipse burned a crescent wound on a woman’s retina. She wasn’t wearing proper glasses.

Some of the craziness doesn't strike me as being very ethical.

The Moon Eclipsed the Sun. Then the Bees Stopped Buzzing.
