TO­TAL ECLIPSE, USA STYLE

CAR (UK) - - The Six Nations Tour -

WHETHER BY CHANCE or plan­ning, Mit­subishi’s in­tro­duc­tion of the Eclipse Cross couldn’t have been timed bet­ter.

For the first time in 99 years, the United States ex­pe­ri­enced a coast to coast to­tal eclipse on 21 Au­gust 2017. Start­ing in Ore­gon, a 70-mile wide ‘path of to­tal­ity’ swept across the States, with the moon pass­ing di­rectly in front of the sun, trig­ger­ing a two-minute to­tal black­out. Briefly birds and an­i­mals switched to their night­time be­hav­iour, caus­ing an eerie calm. Only at this point could skygaz­ers look at the sun with­out eye pro­tec­tion.
