Something Really Weird Happened On Earth April 2024

On April 8th, a captivating celestial event unfolded across North America, casting a temporary shadow over the sky. This phenomenon, known as a total solar eclipse, saw the moon completely obscures the sun.

Lasting up to 4 minutes and 28 seconds, this spectacle occurred along a 115-mile-wide path spanning Mexico, the United States, and Canada, stretching over 10,000 miles. Within this corridor, the moon’s shadow plunged the surroundings into darkness, offering a remarkable display of nature’s grandeur. Beyond this path, onlookers witnessed a solar eclipse, a mesmerizing sight in its own right.

Ancient civilizations often regarded total solar eclipses with a mixture of awe and fear. They interpreted these events as ominous signs from the gods, possibly signaling divine displeasure. Some myths even depicted the sun’s temporary disappearance as the result of menacing creatures like dragons, which supposedly required loud noises to scare them away.


Following the historic celestial event that took place on Monday, Americans across the country began to complain of eclipse-induced nausea, headaches and eye pain according to Daily Mail.

“Is it normal to be a little nauseated afterwards?” Youtuber Hank Green asked in a post on X.

“I think the headaches or nausea or dizziness or anxiety, lasting less than 24 hours, are due to the discombobulation you may feel from sudden light shifts from an eclipse, especially if you are particularly sensitive to them.”

NASA maintains that, as long as one wears proper eye protection while viewing an eclipse, their health will not be negatively affected.

“There is no physical relationship between a total solar eclipse and your health, any more than there is a relationship between your health and a new moon,” NASA said during the time of the 2017 solar eclipse.

“Among a random sample of people, you may find such correlations from time to time, but they are outnumbered by all the other occasions during which your health was excellent.”
