(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.
