Imagine standing in an open field with the summer sun beating down on you. Then, slowly but steadily, the sun blackens. The temperature drops, birds become quiet, and crickets begin their evening chirps. In less than a minute the bright daytime sky is replaced by twilight. Day has turned into night. This is a total solar eclipse and one is about to happen in our area. On Aug. 21, the “Great American Eclipse” will be visible along a narrow band that stretches from Oregon, across the central United States, and out through our home state of South Carolina.

I first met Tracy Fish on a muggy evening in Conway, SC sitting on a screened in porch sipping a glass of whiskey. There was a long table full of folks, carousing and cracking jokes, and Tracy was one among them. The thing I remember most that night were her stories and her unending sense of humor and lightness. She is not just a woman in her own right—commanding a presence with her voice and wit, but a talented photographer who uses her camera to share these visual yarns from the road.

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The sight of a total solar eclipse is an event you can't miss, but your health and safety are very important. Permanent eye damage or severe visual loss - even blindness - can happen by looking directly at the sun. This is good to remember, because on Aug. 21, millions will be looking to the sky for the first total solar eclipse in decades. Dr. Louis Rubbo, an astronomy professor at Coastal Carolina University, said it's an experience you want to see, but not with your bare eyes.
