José Cuervo Tequila: The brand sent along some eclipse-themed cocktail recipes, including the "Total Especial Eclipse". Total eclipses are visible where the darkest part of the shadow, the umbra passes across the surface of the Earth.
With only partial coverage of the solar disk, this will mean more exposure, particularly from the corona, an aura of plasma that surrounds the sun and other stars and extends millions of kilometers into space.
"The density of the plasma is so low that during those two minutes of totality when only the corona is visible, it does not harm the eyes". Glasses, telescopes or binoculars, each fitted with solar filters and dark lenses, are required accessories and should not be of a homemade variety. "I can't stress that enough".
