Last quote by Maria Mitchell

In a total eclipse of the sun, the earth passes through the small dark cone of shadow which the moon throws upon the earth. The dark shadow is never great in extent, at most but about 200 miles, but as the moon moves along it throws its shadow upon one place after another, circle of black overlying circle of black, until if we map down the footsteps of the shadow a narrow band of black seems to girdle the country.feedback
