Are you ready for the total solar eclipse? The phenomenon is happening August 21st, and it might cause zombie apocalypse-like conditions.
The eclipse will make its way from Oregon to South Carolina, and Angela Speck, a researcher at the University of Maryland says about two-thirds of Americans live within a day's drive of the eclipse. Some experts have predicted that the weekend leading up to the eclipse will see more travelers on planes, trains, and in cars than any other time in 2017.
Speck adds, "There will hopefully be less bloodshed, but zombies don't need regular food, or sleep, or toilets [while those traveling to watch the eclipse do.]" So why are people so excited?
The last total solar eclipse to touch the continental United States was back in 1979.
