It hasn't happened in a century but what goes around comes around! :)
To celebrate the US Aug. 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse many festivals are happening in the towns along the moon's path. Do read the details in the link in the previous sentence for further information.
Plus, the US postal service created a groovy 2017 Total Solar Eclipse stamp that is triggered by heat to change the image on its front. Very creative!
If you look at the eclipse, remember to wear specially issued sunglasses when you look towards the sun. Have a fun day!
