My Experience With the STX Eclipse II | STX Eclipse 2 Review
While I am a lax rat, I’ve never really been a gear rat. I mean just look at that photo of me above, I still use the Cascade C2 helmet from my college days. I hardly ever get excited about a new piece of gear.
When they announced the STX Eclipse II goalie head – I got excited.
And why shouldn’t I? The original STX Eclipse is my go-to goalie head. But that original was released in 1999!
18 years ago! Making this updated STX Eclipse II well over due.
Anyways as soon as the STX Eclipse II became available for pre-sale I ordered it. Then I impatiently waited until July 4th when they shipped out.
I’ve now played around with this new goalie head for a few weeks and in this post I’ll share my thoughts with a review of the STX Eclipse II.
STX Eclipse 2 Unboxing
First of all, I made an unboxing video when I first received my new goalie stick in the mail.
If you haven’t seen that, you can check it out here:
That video gives a little intro to the stick head and captures my reaction after seeing the STX Eclipse II for the first time.
STX Eclipse II – Stiffer Than The Original With Light Weight
One of the biggest criticism of the original STX Eclipse is that it’s too flimsy or flexible.
When high-velocity shots hit the corners of the head it can bend or deform in shape. Sometimes to the point where the ball enters the goal even though the goal gets a solid piece of the stick on the shot.
While some goalies dislike the flexible nature, others goalies love it.
MLL goalie All-Star John Galloway favors the STX Eclipse. Look how he drives that flexible head into the ground to secure low saves and then uses the flexibility of the head for a quick ground ball pickup.
The STX Eclipse II is definitely stiffer!
In this version of the Eclipse, STX updated the sidewall geometry to make the head stiffer while adding minuscule weight.
As I took shots with the Eclipse II you can feel the difference in stiffness. Shots that hit the sidewall or top corners of the head have a noticeably different feel with this new goalie head.
Even flexing each head against the ground you can notice that the Eclipse II is definitely stiffer.
The “not adding much weight” is also crucial because the original Eclipse is one of the lighter heads on the market and the STX Eclipse 2 is equally as light. Which is great.
The stiffness is closer to the STX Shield (albeit I’d say the Shield is still stiffer) while being much lighter.
For those that have used the Under Armour Headline I’d say the stiffness is comparable. Which is why people called the Headline, Eclipse 2.0 long before STX released this new goalie head.
For goalies who cannot stand getting a piece of the ball and having the shot bend your head, you will really like the updated stiffness that STX has put into this goalie head.
Different Stringing Holes Setup
The STX Eclipse II features a different stringing hole setup than the original.
Starting with the top, they’re reduced the number of holes to 7.
This actually isn’t that big of a deal because every time I string an STX Eclipse original head I use just 7 holes along the top anyways, as you can see on the right side of this photo:
I think STX realized nobody was using those top 4 holes so they did away with them in the II. Smart move as this actually makes things much simpler and gives the head more stiffness.
The STX Eclipse II contains a lot more sidewall hole options. While the original has 12 sidewall holes, the STX Eclipse 2 has 20 sidewall holes.
This gives advanced stick stringers a lot of options when it comes to determining the proper pattern to get a great channel.
I didn’t string this but just look at this beauty of a pocket in my new STX Eclipse II:
For the novice stick stringer (of which I put myself in this group) the addition of more sidewall holes makes it more complicated to string. Hence I anticipate lots of requests like this on Reddit (and IG) of Eclipse II stringers seeking advice.
So you’re going to have to up your goalie stringing game if you want to this new head.
New Scoop Design
Another feature that the STX team touts on the new Eclipse II is a refined scoop to enhance GB pickups.
Truth be told, I didn’t notice a difference between the STX Eclipse II’s scoop and the scoop of its predecessor. But that’s a good thing.
In reviewing the STX Eclipse original I wrote this:
The thin top plastic on the STX Eclipse makes scooping ground balls incredibly easy. I have found that I can scoop from such sharp angles that I have no problem jumping in on a ground ball battle, as I am able to quickly scoop and start a fast break up the field before attackman can catch up.
In picking up groundballs with the STX Eclipse 2 I’ve found that the thin scoop is still there. So I wouldn’t say its enhanced but it was kept as is on this new goalie head.
When you try to pickup a ground ball with a Nemi or Nemi 2, you’ll feel the difference. The Eclipse 2 has a great design for scooping up GB’s or when you give up the occasaional rebound.
New Ergonomic Throat
The original STX has a wide throat meaning its near impossible to grip the throat when you setup in your stance.
I know goalies who setup that way with the OG Eclipse and I could never understand how that was comfortable as the throat is so wide.
The STX Eclipse II features a new ergonomic throat that could be gripped by the goalie when they setup in their lacrosse goalie stance.
I emphasize “could be” because I actually don’t like setting up gripping the throat so this “improvement” didn’t really effect me whatsoever.
While playing with the STX Eclipse II I still setup with my top hand on the shaft but touching the bottom part of the plastic. Like this position in the image below (albeit a looser grip when in my stance).
I do know a lot of goalies out there who prefer to have their top hand as close to the pocket as possible and prefer the grip of the new throat. But I’m not one of those goalies so this feature didn’t really apply to me.
For the goalies that prefer option #1 in the post below, the STX Eclipse II new throat design will be a very welcome change for you.
The back of the throat also comes with 2 holes to attach the head to the STX Outlet shaft. Although STX only includes 1 screw (damn) in the package. Anyways the additional connection is nice to ensure the head is firmly attached and no rattling starts to happen.
STX Eclipse 2 – The Specs
Here are some of the specs of the STX Eclipse II, compared to the OG.
While much stiffer, the STX Eclipse II is not that much heavier than the original.
Here are the factory weights of the two unstrung heads:
- STX Eclipse II – 11.6 oz (329 grams)
- STX Eclipse – 11.4 oz (323 grams)
Both my STX Eclipse II and the original were already strung with a pocket so I can’t get a true apples-to-apples comparison on my home scale.
But weighing with the strung up pocket is close enough.
Clearly the 12 diamond mesh that the II has weighs a little more.
That slight difference could be in the pocket weight but it’s nice to know that STX Eclipse didn’t drastically increase the weight to make this head stiffer.
I find sticks like the Nemesis (OG and 2) and STX Shield to be too heavy for my liking. I prefer the lightness of the Eclipse and that continues with their new model.
While taking shots with the STX Eclipse II, I didn’t notice any drastic difference in weight and that’s great.
Height and Width
The STX Eclipse II has the same face shape as the original.
Thus it makes sense that the height and width of the new head are essentially identical to the original.
Overall little was done to change the face shape of this new model. I’ve always thought that the Eclipse had the best face shape in the game and apparently so does the STX team.
The Shaft – STX Outlet
Until September, STX is only selling the full stick combination. If you want to get an Eclipse 2 head, they are making everyone get the full stick before they release the head only in the fall.
So I might as well say a few words about the shaft sold with the head – the STX Outlet.
The first thing that I noticed is the shape of the shaft. The front is a hexagon, similar to any lacrosse shaft I’ve played with. But the back of the shaft is a circle, completely smooth.
I’m not sure if this is used in other lacrosse shafts but it was my first time experiencing it.
It was a different feel that took a little time to get used to. But I really like it. The rounded shaft sits nicely in your palm as you setup in your lacrosse goalie stance.
The shaft is shorter in length at 35″ but that’s how I prefer it. I actually have an attack shaft length on my STX Eclipse original.
STX Eclipse II Stringing Pattern
Lots of goalies email me asking for a stringing pattern on their new STX Eclipse II head. Unfortunately, while I may be good at coaching goalies, I’m bad when it comes to stringing heads.
But here are a few good videos that show STX Eclipse II stringing patterns –
Where to Order the STX Eclipse II?
You can get the new Eclipse II at any online lacrosse goalie equipment vendor.
Amazon has the STX Eclipse 2 for $90 right now.
Also you can get it on LacrosseMonkey.com. They have a fully string stick option if you’re not a stick ninja. Watch my unboxing video, I orderd this and the pocket turned out pretty good.
As I mentioned, until September (I believe) the stick is only available as a complete package, meaning it comes with the STX Outlet shaft and STX Memory Mesh to string it up.
On sites like Lacrosse Monkey you can purchase the STX Eclipse II complete stick package for $165.
Whether you call it the STX Eclipse II or the STX Eclipse 2 – when this bad boy dropped to say I was hyped is an understatement. After not coming out with a revised goalie head for 18 set up, STX finally dropped a revised version of the goalie classic.
Overall I really like the new STX Eclipse II goalie head. It’s stronger and more versatile. While some of the features STX claims may not be relative for me there’s little doubt this is a better goalie head than the original.
From my conversations with STX sponsored goalies like Adam Ghitelman the pro’s are also really liking the new STX Eclipse II too.
Some of the new features touted by STX on their site like an updated scoop seem the same. But I’m fine with that as I think the original STX scoop is great for GB’s. The updated throat also didn’t apply to be based on how I setup with my top hand in my stance.
The biggest upgrade is that the frame is stiffened up while coming in at roughly the same weight. I think the end result is a stiffer and versatile goalie head that you’re going to like.
I guess we’ll see you again in another 18 years for the STX Eclipse III.
Until next time! Coach Damon

Scenic Eclipse 2 Itinerary, Current Position, Ship Review
The 2023-built Scenic Eclipse 2 cruise ship is currently under construction in Croatia (Rijeka). This is a top-luxury superyacht with max passenger capacity 228 (plus 192 staff-crew) and a 10-deck design, more resembling a billionaire yacht than a passenger ship. The ultra-modern design features an ice-strengthened hull, top-deck helipad (with two on-deck stored helicopters / in hangars), 12x Zodiacs (high-speed, large-capacity RIBs / rigid inflatable boats), 1x mini-sub (7-person submarine), 1x ROV (camera-equipped Remotely Operated Vehicle). The aft-located Marina Platform is used for launching water sports equipment (aqua quad-bikes, seakayaks, snorkeling and scuba diving activities).
With the top-luxury expedition cruise ships Scenic Eclipse 1 and Scenic Eclipse 2, the 1987-founded river cruisetour company Scenic Cruises and Tours entered the ocean-cruising market. The first ultra-luxury superyacht Scenic Eclipse 1 was launched in August 2018 and inaugurated in September 2018. The second same-designed vessel/sistership Scenic Eclipse II was scheduled for inauguration in 2020 but eventually postponed to 2022-Q3 and 2023-Q1.
Scenic’s new market strategy followed the moves of Viking River Cruises (entering the ocean market in 2015 with Viking Star) and Crystal Cruises (entering the mega-yachting market in 2015 with Crystal Esprit).
Scenic’s new ships are advertised as “discovery yachts”. The hull has the highest passenger ship ice-class (1A-Super) allowing the vessel to operate on polar cruises (Arctic and Antarctica itineraries) for 3 months a year. On polar voyages, the ship’s passenger capacity is limited to 200 in order to allow several Zodiac landings per day.
The ship’s 2 helicopters Airbus h230 (single-engine aircraft, each with capacity 7 passengers) can be booked/hired at extra charge. Helicopter tours allow passengers to get closer to the wildlife in comparison to the Zodiac landings. Also at an additional charge can be booked the ship’s onboard submarine. The 7-person submarine (1 pilot plus 6 guests) is named “Scenic Neptune” and is capable to submerge up to 1000 ft (305 m).
Decks and Cabins
Scenic Eclipse 2 staterooms (114 total) are all double-occupancy Suites in total 14 categories.

Owners Penthouse Suites are sized 1990 ft2 / 185 m2 (balcony included). Each cabin has a private step-out balcony. The vessel has an almost 1:1 passenger-to-crew ratio and each stateroom are served by a dedicated butler.
The boat has 10 decks, of which 8 are passenger-accessible and 5 with cabins.
Four Lifts (midship-located Elevators) interconnect all cabin decks.
Other features and all-inclusive amenities include:
- 9 restaurants (including Asian Fusion, steakhouse, seafood, contemporary French and Italian venues, poolside grill, 24/7 room service
- four bars and lounges
- 240-seat Theater Lounge
- 2 (indoor and outdoor) swimming pools

- 5900 ft2 (550 m2) spa/wellness complex with heated indoor pool, outdoor Jacuzzis, plunge pools, Hair Salon, Spa treatment/massage rooms
- gym (with a separate Aerobics Studio for yoga and Pilates)
Scenic yacht cruise deals are inclusive of butler service (regardless cabin category), flights, all tips/gratuities, Discovery Team leaders (professional tour guides on all cruise itineraries), shore excursions (all land tours and organized events at ports of call and beaches along the itinerary route, expert-led Scenic Free choice activities, discovery excursions by Zodiacs / large-capacity inflatable boats), onboard dining (all dining venues are complimentary / fee-free), onboard entertainment, e-biking, water sports (sea kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving), premium beverages (at bars and cabin mini-bars).
The ship has “zero speed stabilizer fins” (50% larger than typical on a similar-sized vessel) allowing it to navigate in rough seas with just little movement. Voyages to Antarctica include passing Drake Passage – a notoriously rough waterway between South America and Antarctica.
Shipboard dining options – Food and Drinks
Scenic Eclipse 2 cruise ship offers all 9 dining venues plus 24-hour room service. The ship also has an impressive number of bars and lounges – 8, which is an extraordinary variety considering the vessel’s size. All these options are complimentary (cruise price inclusive).
Specialty dining venues highlight regional cuisine, intimate deck location and dinner privacy at no additional cost. These venues range from the open-kitchen Teppanyaki grill dining (capacity 10 people) to the Chef’s Table (private VIP dining for 8 people). Professional cookery demonstrations are offered at the dedicated Epicure (cooking emporium).
The main dining room restaurant “Elements” offers Italian fare, seafood, and steaks. The other restaurants are named Koko’s (Asian, with sake bar), Sushi at Koko’s (authentic Japanese), Lumiere (French, with Champagne Bar). The Yacht Club has its own a bar, buffet and poolside grill. Azure Bar & Cafe offers all-day relaxed grazing.
Bars and lounges include Lobby Lounge, Champagne Bar, Azure Bar & Cafe. Fine wine, top-shelf beverages, cocktails, specialty teas, and coffees are all included in Scenic Cruises’ ticket prices.

MSU astrophysicist told about the rarest solar eclipse
Today, June 10, 2021, the rarest solar eclipse – annular, will occur. On average, there are only 14 such eclipses in 100 years. In Moscow, the eclipse will reach its greatest phase at 14:26.
A researcher at the Department of the Moon and Planets of the State Astronomical Institute named after P.K. Sternberg (GAISH) MSU Ekaterina Feoktistova:
“The shadow of the moon will slide across the surface of the northern hemisphere of the Earth, crossing Canada, Greenland, the region of the North Pole of the Earth, the northeastern part of Siberia, Kamchatka and Chukotka.The zone in which the inhabitants of the Earth can observe a partial solar eclipse covers North America, Greenland, northern and central Europe, the European part of Russia and Siberia. A partial eclipse of the Sun can be seen both in Moscow and in St. Petersburg.
Eclipses of the Sun occur because periodically the natural satellite of the Earth – the Moon – is located between the Earth and the Sun and eclipses the latter from the inhabitants of our planet. From 2 to 5 eclipses can occur per year.A solar eclipse can be of three types: total, partial and annular. During an eclipse, the shadow of the Moon slides across the Earth and for an observer in the shadow, the eclipse will be total. If the observer is in partial shade, the eclipse will be partial. In this case, the observer will be able to see how the moon moves, eclipsing part of the solar disk.
Solar eclipses are relatively frequent, with 237 solar eclipses occurring on average over 100 years. At the same time, only 63 of them are complete.Annular eclipses are the rarest, with an average of only 14 such events occurring in 100 years. Sometimes an eclipse of the Sun can be observed as total in one region of the Earth and as annular in another. Such an eclipse is called “hybrid”.
An annular solar eclipse occurs when, at the time of a total solar eclipse, the apparent size of the moon is less than the apparent size of the sun. This is a consequence of the peculiarities of the movement of the Earth and the Moon in space. The Earth moves around the Sun in an elliptical orbit, and despite the fact that this orbit is close to circular, the distance between the Sun and the Earth is constantly changing, reaching its maximum value (152.1 million km) in aphelion and minimum (147.1 million km) at perihelion.At the same time, the size of the Sun, visible to a terrestrial observer, also changes. These changes are insignificant and reach an average of 3%. Similarly, due to the fact that the Moon revolves around the Earth in an elliptical orbit, the apparent size of the Moon changes slightly: the difference between the apparent size of the Moon at the apogee and perigee of the lunar orbit reaches ~ 10%. If the Earth is close to the perihelion of its orbit, and the Moon is close to its apogee, the apparent size of the Moon may turn out to be slightly less than the apparent size of the Sun.In this case, the inhabitants of the Earth will be able to observe the annular eclipse of the Sun. ”

Trajectory map eclipse movements – from west to east
Tempted by the Divine, Prince Igor dreams of “kidnapping the past glory, and sharing the future.”
The groan of the Russian land is heard. Here strife is a common thing. The murder is not surprising. Diva is intoxicated by the smell of fresh blood. The sky is falling. The saints cry for the slain, but people do not hear them.
And Princess Yaroslavna read the terrible future in her dead eyes.
Every prince wants power, but not everyone will get it. And Igor’s squad is strong for envy. The young prince inspires.The blood is boiling. Guys are enrolled in the militia, stand up under the banner of Igor in order to get honor for themselves, and glory for the prince. Camping starts. Igor calls on to exterminate the enemy – “Glory to Igor!”
Yaroslavna has too little time with Igor. She fails to dissuade her husband, who is convinced of his truth. The prince gives the command to start the campaign. Cries Div, anticipating a bloody harvest.
The sun is hiding. Eclipse.
II. Black act
The hike continues. The army sets off on the black Polovtsian land.Steppe intoxicates. Here past calamities and ghosts of impending catastrophes flicker. Fearfully. But the first battle with the Polovtsians brings an easy victory. Each has its own reward: Igor – a trophy, and the heated squad – games with Polovtsian girls.
And when the soldiers fall asleep, the maiden makes a bloody sacrifice to notify her tribe. Nocturnal premonitions of the Polovtsians will not be deceived. They merge in a shamanic dance, they pray to an idol. Div is pleased.
Awakening does not bring peace to the prince.Igor persuades the tired soldiers to move on.
Suddenly … an oasis! How dear guests are greeted by the squad! Everything a warrior dreams of on the road is it! Food, drink, women … And the main gift is for the prince!
But this is an ambush. The second battle is ingloriously lost. The soldiers were killed in the steppe of death.
And the princess feels: death is all around, but Igor is still alive. The wind carries the cry of Yaroslavna: even though she is ready to ask the gods, even water, even the earth – if only her husband was returned to her.
Igor is in the dungeon. The souls of the fallen warriors are flowing past.
Divas are triumphant. He is ready to arrange an escape so that Igor can gather a new army.
Yaroslavna is in despair. Yaroslavna ended. No strength, no hope. The boy promises her: he will return. But Igor’s return is overshadowed by grief.
A new appeal arises. The sword is forged, the enemy is outlined. Let’s go to?
What will the prayer be about: future victories or peace?

A solar eclipse is an astronomical phenomenon, which consists in the fact that the Moon covers (eclipses) the Sun in whole or in part from an observer on Earth. A solar eclipse is possible only on a new moon, when the side of the Moon facing the Earth is not illuminated and the Moon itself is not visible.
Attention! It is imperative to observe the partial and annular phases of a solar eclipse through binoculars or a telescope using a special solar filter. For the naked eye, dark filters, such as a welding mask, smoked glass, are suitable.
Location: roof of the laboratory building SGUGiT

90,000 What time and how to watch a solar eclipse on July 2, 2019
Every year, there are several solar eclipses on Earth, and in 2019 we were especially lucky – we can observe this amazing phenomenon as many as three times.One of the most beautiful eclipses will take place today, July 2. Unlike the eclipses that took place on January 6 and the upcoming December 26 eclipses, it will be total and will last as much as 4 minutes and 33 seconds. What time will the solar eclipse take place, as well as where and how to observe it, said the Moscow Planetarium.
What is a solar eclipse in general? The planetarium blog describes this astronomical phenomenon as a “celestial spectacle” during which the Sun, Earth and Moon line up in one line.In the case of a solar eclipse, the Moon becomes in the middle of this line, and if the Earth is between two objects, a lunar eclipse occurs.
How long does a solar eclipse last?
The duration of solar eclipses does not exceed 7.5 minutes – during this time, the lunar shadow slides across the earth’s surface at a speed of 1 kilometer per hour. Its diameter is 270 kilometers and it covers 15,000 kilometers. Only residents of those areas where this path passes can see how the Moon overlaps the Sun.
Where to watch a solar eclipse?
In 2019, a solar eclipse can be observed in the southeastern Pacific Ocean, Chile and Argentina. The inhabitants of these regions are especially fortunate, as during a total solar eclipse, stars can be seen around the sun. The event will take place at 22:23 Moscow time, but residents of Russia will not be able to watch it.
What are the types of solar eclipses?
In addition to the total, there are partial and annular solar eclipses.An eclipse is partial if the Moon covers only the edge of the Sun. If the earth’s satellite does not cover the entire solar disk, but leaves a bright ring of light around it, then the eclipse is called annular.
What is an eclipse corridor?
As a rule, two weeks after a solar eclipse, a lunar eclipse can be observed in the sky. According to the Moscow Planetarium, the next eclipse of the Earth’s satellite will take place on July 17. The time interval between two events is called the corridor of eclipses.

As mentioned above, in Russia it will be impossible to observe a solar eclipse this time. However, photos and videos of this phenomenon can be viewed on our Telegram channel.
Solar eclipse: readiness in Nadym No. 1
August 1, 2008, 05:13
Today is the day of a total solar eclipse. At 16.20 for 2 minutes 27 seconds, the Moon will completely cover the Sun.Nadym was declared the “capital” of the eclipse. It is in this city that the eclipse will be seen best. Thousands of people today will be able to see a unique phenomenon. A special platform has been prepared in the city, from which all guests and residents of the city will be able to observe this unique phenomenon, which, according to scientists, will be repeated in Russia only in 2030. The full phase of a solar eclipse, according to the specialists of the observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences, can be observed only in Nadym. The width of the shadow and the duration of the eclipse are maximum – 236.8 kilometers and 2 minutes 27.2 seconds.The solar eclipse is one of the main events in the North. Therefore, today is even announced in Nadym as a shortened working day. This decision was made by the head of the city. The people of Nadym began to prepare for the eclipse in advance. Almost a month before, travel companies in Nadym had developed special offers. During tourist programs, you can not only observe a solar eclipse, but also see local attractions. A German delegation arrived in Nakaune in Nadym. As the head of the department of domestic and outbound tourism of the regional tourism development center Irina Petrishcheva said, the delegation includes ten tourists from Austria and Germany and the accompanying general director of the Troika-Reisen travel agency Irina Peters.Guests will also visit the photo exhibition of solar eclipses “Space and We”, which is taking place in the Museum of History and Archeology. This exposition, organized by the city department for culture, sports and youth policy with the assistance of the regional department of culture, is timed to coincide with a total solar eclipse. The exhibition presents the works of the best photographers and astronomical observatories in the world. They depict various natural phenomena: from meteor showers and aurora borealis to partial and total lunar and solar eclipses, constellations and galaxies.
Over the past five days, the Museum of History and Archeology hosted lectures by specialists from the Omsk Observatory for different categories of Nadym residents – schoolchildren, students, adults on the topics: “The nature of a solar eclipse”, “Solar wind”, “Unusual effects during a total solar eclipse.” For children 6-12 years old, the program includes cognitive and role-playing games: “Solar Eclipse”, “Space Carousel”, “Find an Eclipse”. After today’s total solar eclipse, the Nadym photo exhibition will be replenished with new works.The best of them will be awarded with special prizes. As part of the events dedicated to the solar eclipse, the All-Russian Father Frost and the Grandfather of the North – Yamal-Iri (Ngerm Iri) will arrive in Nadym today at the invitation of the city administration for culture, sports and youth policy.
As reported in the department of social development and public relations of the administration of Nadym, in connection with the solar eclipse, these traditionally “winter” fairy-tale characters were in demand in the summer. If Grandfather Frost, whose residence is in Veliky Ustyug, is known in Russia to everyone from young to old, then the fabulous magician Ngerm Iri – Grandfather Frost of Yamal – appeared on the Yamal land relatively recently, but has already won the hearts of many Yamal children.He lives in the village of Gornoknyazevsk near Salekhard, but does not sit still, but constantly visits the children of kindergartens and schools, recently visited the Shuryshkarsky district and now arrives in Nadym.
But not only tourists will visit Nadym on this day. The eclipse is of great interest to scientists. In addition to the spectacular spectacle, they will have time to observe important processes in 2 minutes 27 seconds. Investigating them, you can find out what the solar activity is, study the structure of the sun, its evolution, analyze solar-terrestrial connections.Also, an eclipse allows you to predict climate change and test the effects of general and special theories of relativity. So, the day has come when the Sun, Moon and Earth will line up in one row. Nadym residents and guests of the city will see a total solar eclipse. The main thing is that no one has forgotten about the simple safety rules required to protect the eyes. Recall that the eclipse has no physical effect on people.
