The air temperature drop is greater during a total eclipse than during a partial eclipse, while the other two don't affect the air temperature at all. -- 10:31, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

A booklet I got on the eclipse said this: "If natural wonders were on a scale of 1 to 10, a partial solar eclipse might be a 7, but a total solar eclipse would be a 1,000,000!!!" They were right. I was there. That's right, Jacky720 just signed this (talk | contribs) 10:50, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

This is fun. 11:17, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

Is it worth having an "2017 Total Eclipse" tag for the 5 comics? 11:30, 23 August 2017 (UTC)

Yes. Be sure it includes the other comics that mentioned the eclipse, like 1868: Eclipse Flights. Dretler (talk) 12:37, 23 August 2017 (UTC)
And it should also be "2017 Total Solar Eclipse".

Here's a Whatif topic: What if the earth's orbit around the sun and the moon's orbit around the earth were in the same plane so that a solar eclipse happened every month. How would that affect tides, global temperature, animal behavior, etc? Would the orbits be stable or would the gravitational tugs destabilize the orbits?

SO. TRUE. (I saw it in Salem) SilverMagpie (talk) 13:54, 23 August 2017 (UTC)
