Today, millions of people across North America donned solar glasses and looked up. And since our show is all about wonder and curiosity and incredible places—a moment like the Great American Eclipse is something we take very seriously. If you missed it or weren’t in the path of totality when the moon passed in front of the sun, we have you covered.

In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we sink into this shared once-in-a-generation experience, powered by voices across the continent. Special thanks to everyone who contributed to this episode, especially those who joined us at the Atlas Obscura Ecliptic Festival in Hot Springs, Arkansas.

Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
