On the eve of the second solar eclipse of the year, which happens today, October 25th, the Bears scored a total of 33 points.
Today’s eclipse is only a partial eclipse. For the sake of consistency and a modicum of simplicity, I try to avoid discussing partial eclipses as much as possible, since they are relatively insignificant compared to total eclipses, and happen far more frequently.
The only real exception I tend to make is on the actual date of solar eclipses, when it’s very obvious that a related ritual is occurring. Recall the Route 66 Google Doodle that celebrated the 66th eclipse of the Saros cycle.
