#1: Today’s generation of American adults were born and raised in the 20th century, which was a “dark age” of American eclipses. However, a “golden age” of 21st century American total solar eclipses begins on Monday, August 21, 2017 with the first coast-to-coast eclipse in a century. Today’s young generation of Americans will see FIVE total solar eclipses over the USA in the next 35 years. This will be a defining feature of their lifetimes. You’ve heard of the Baby Boomers, Generation X and the Millennials… today’s American youth is GENERATION ECLIPSE!
Generation Eclipse is an educational comic strip feature by Jay Ryan, in the style of his SkyWise astronomy comic strip. Everyone is encouraged to share this strip in its original, unmodified form on their website and in social media, to help promote the eclipse.
