5. Flowers planted during the eclipse will be more vibrant than the rest
Some Italians believe that flowers you plant during a solar eclipse will grow to be more vibrant than flowers planted at other times of the year.
Unfortunately for these Italians – and all gardening aficionados -- there is no science to back up this claim.
6. The solar eclipse will cause you to go completely blind
It is rumored that a total solar eclipse can cause you to go completely blind due to the production of harmful rays created by the sun.
“Being a million times fainter than the light from the sun itself, there is nothing in the coronal light that could cross 150 million kilometers of space , penetrate our dense atmosphere, and cause blindness,” NASA officials say.
7. There are no total solar eclipses in the North and South Poles
They may appear to be special places due to their location, but there have been total solar eclipses reported in the North and South Poles.
NASA officials say the last solar eclipse viewed from the North Pole occurred on March 20, 2015. In the south, it happened on Nov. 23, 2003.
