TOTAL ECLIPSE, USA STYLE
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.
