WATCH: News Footage of the 1979 Solar Eclipse
Today’s solar eclipse isn’t the only eclipse to have been met with fanfare.
This ABC News coverage from 1979 left anchors awestruck.
It’s a 10-minute clip collection from ABC News’ coverage of the last large-scale total solar eclipse to be seen in the lower 48 U.S. states. The event occurred in February of 1979, and the path of totality swept across five states.
LOOK AT THAT VIDEO! HOW AMAZING IS IT?
That moment at around 6 minutes and 30 seconds in, when the sun hits totality above the Rockies and the crowd cheers, and the news anchors gasp is just… I’m awestruck.
