The socially fearless or those turned uninhibited from a night of drinking at karaoke are bound to belt out the classic Total Eclipse of the Heart, as every avid Bonnie Tyler fan has done at least once in their life.
But the even glamorous Bonnie Tyler is about to raise the benchmark higher even even more iconic as she is reportedly going to sing her classic 80’s hit before the viewing party of the Great American Eclipse; a nearly hundred-year-in-the-making phenomenon set to occur on Aug. 21, Buzzfeed reports.
Tyler will be joined by DNCE on the Royal Caribbean International cruise company on their Total Eclipse Cruise, set to sail on Aug. 20, which they’ve billeted as a ‘bucket list worthy’ viewing party at the ’most optimum’ viewing area along the Caribbean.
Nothing like hearing one of 1983’s most enduring ballads sung live before you see an actual solar eclipse! One can only imagine all the people who will fall in love only to fall apart later on.
“We’re set to take vacationers on an unprecedented experience that is nearly a century in the making,” Royal Caribbean International President and CEO Michael Bayley said.
“A total solar eclipse hasn’t crossed the entire U.S. since 1918, and with many of our ships sailing to the Caribbean along the projected path, the stars aligned. Oasis of the Seas will have the vantage point of the century and an unforgettable celebration out at sea that adventurers won’t want to miss,” Bayley said in the company’s statement.
Solar eclipses occur when the moon passes between the earth and the sun, causing it to partially or even fully block out the sun.
And since it is super rare for solar eclipses to occur, people are obviously excited and companies are rolling out solar eclipse viewing glasses, touted as the only safe way to be able to look at the eclipse for a limited period of time.
But be careful, as there are some sellers advertising glasses to be safe when in fact, it does not have the necessary filters on the lenses approved by professionals.
The American Astronomical Society has a list of reputable sellers of these glasses though, so scroll through if you’re looking to cop a pair for gawking at one of nature’ s most mysterious phenomena.
