Perfect Playlist to Gear Up for the Solar Eclipse August 21st

Unless you live under a (moon) rock, you have likely heard that we are in the path to experience an exciting celestial event August 21st – a near-total solar eclipse. Here’s the perfect playlist for eclipse day!

I’m sure you’re wondering what makes this solar eclipse so special. Here’s the deal… Evansville is just a couple of hours away from being able to see the moon block the sun in totality. Here in Evansville, we will get about 98% totality but our neighbors over in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, which will be the global scientific mecca for eclipse viewing with folks coming from all over the world – they’re calling it “the point of greatest eclipse,” will achieve a total eclipse meaning that there will literally be minutes of darkness where the stars will shine in the middle of the afternoon as the moon eclipses the sun in the sky. According to Space.com:

During a total solar eclipse, the disk of the moon blocks out the last sliver of light from the sun, and the sun’s outer atmosphere, the corona, becomes visible. The corona is far from an indistinct haze; skywatchers report seeing great jets and ribbons of light, twisting and curling out into the sky.

 

What a brilliant exhibition to see! Of course, you never want to look directly at a solar eclipse – or the sun for that matter. There are precautions that should be taken for safe and proper viewing of a solar eclipse.

While you’re viewing the eclipse though, you need the perfect musical soundtrack. Here are some songs that will go perfectly with your celestial sideshow. We’ll start with the “sun songs” and end with the “moon songs”
