The Solar Eclipse
As if the year couldn't get any stranger, droves of people across the nation congregated outside to stare up at the sun with special and highly coveted glasses. On Aug. 21, a total solar eclipse took place in the United States. The rare solar event hadn't happened since 1991 and will not happen again in the US until 2024. In the nation's capital, Donald Trump and his family gathered to check out the solar eclipse — although the president did not follow instructions and was caught looking directly at the sun. Aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise, Bonnie Tyler even performed her iconic song "Total Eclipse of the Heart" in honor of what has been dubbed The Great American Eclipse.
