How to use eclipse in a sentence?

  1. 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.

  2. Fred Espenak:

    I've seen aurora, I've seen some volcano eruptions, but the total eclipse is still the most spectacular thing I've ever seen. And each one is unique.

  3. Hudson Henry:

    Find a scene and put the eclipse happening in it, that will tell the story about the place and the moment. I want an image to tell a story.

  4. Hunter Biden:

    Every major Iowa election, caucus, has been determined in the last three to five weeks, i eclipse everybody.

  5. Arthur Kleinman:

    Mental health needs to be a global humanitarian and development priority - and a priority in every country, we need to provide treatment, now, to those who need it most, and in the communities where they live.
