Study: We Watched the Crap Out of That Eclipse

As you may recall, we had a solar eclipse last month.

It was kind of a big deal.

After almost 40 years without a total solar eclipse, the United States got pretty lucky on Aug. 21, with the moon’s shadow crisscrossing the country and at least a partial eclipse visible in all 50 states. About 12 million people lived within that “path of totality,” and 47 million were within 100 miles.

But how many actually turned out to see it?

Thanks to a new study from the University of Michigan
