MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- A man who calls himself a Solar Eclipse Chaser is spending the week in Tennessee.
Rick Brown is driving cross-country following the projected path of next month’s total solar eclipse. He describes the trip as a kind of eclipse outreach, making Americans aware of the event and how to view it safely.
Past eclipses have taken Brown all over the world.
“The first one was in Mexico, the next one after that was in Thailand, South America, and then we had two in Turkey, two in China, two in Africa, and one in Tahiti.”
