The magnetic draw of the total solar eclipse

From the moon and the sun and the stars that shine in the daylight, there are between two and five solar eclipses each year  -- with a total eclipse taking place every 18 months or so. Total solar eclipses are seen every 400 years from any one place on the surface of the Earth.

Late Georgia Civil Rights leader and U.S. Rep. John Lewis said in 2017, as he prepared to watch the last eclipse that drew the country's attention, "there is much to learn from it."

But did you know that there is such a thing as an "untold Black history of eclipse science" that is available to us online as we prepare for the Monday event?

Stay tuned and watch the Black News & Views space through the weekend, up until eclipse time for more information.
