"SOLAR MAXIMUM" COULD MAKE ECLIPSE EVEN MORE UNIQUE

(Whitewater Valley)--Even though the upcoming total solar eclipse in the Whitewater Valley is already a once-in-a-lifetime event, solar physicists are now saying it could be even more unique.  That’s because it is now predicted to occur during what’s called a solar maximum.  A solar maximum is best described as the time when the sun is most active.  It means there’s a higher chance for solar flares and coronal mass ejections.  The countdown clock to the eclipse stood Monday morning at 63 days and a few hours.
