How to use eclipse in a sentence?

  1. Steward Observatory:

    Cloud-outs are traumatic events, if we would have seen the total eclipse, everything else would have just vanished into insignificance.

  2. Kelly Beatty:

    When eclipse day dawns, weather will trump all the geometric calculations and careful planning that eclipse-chasers have worried about for years.

  3. Christopher Quinn:

    It's really impossible for people, when they're in the moment, to make a judgment over brief versus prolonged exposure, it's never a good idea to view the eclipse without the protection.

  4. The Hays ':

    Jung said. In Wyoming where it’s dry and in the peak of fire season, Anna Wilcox said campfires will be banned. People should be aware that leaving a car on the side of the road or throwing a cigarette butt out a window could start a fire, Anna Wilcox added. Anna Wilcox also said people could need to adjust to Casper’s high elevation and should keep an eye out for altitude sickness symptoms. Places like Casper and Hopkinsville may not have chosen to be in the path of totality, but they are still looking forward to showing off their communities and experiencing a total eclipse. There’s no reason why we ca n’t all have fun doing it together, the big thing here for us... is that when that moment of totality comes, that we can all experience it together.

  5. Jeff Young:

    Probably once a week I get a phone call. 'Hi. I have your dog Eclipse here on 3rd and Bell,' i have to tell them, 'no. She's fine.' She knows what she's doing.
