HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- People will experience the eclipse in many different ways, and for some, it will be a spiritual event. Thousands of people have descended on Hopkinsville to watch Monday's total eclipse. But some think it's more than just a once-in-a-lifetime chance to view the moon completely covering the sun, and instead, a moment of spiritual transcendence. We've heard about the science behind the eclipse, but Astrologist Irlianna Samsara says there's more to it than science.
HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- People from across the country flocked to Hopkinsville on Monday to see a total solar eclipse, and they didn't leave disappointed. At the point of total eclipse, people were able to take their glasses off and see the sun's corona outlined by the moon for more than two minutes. "I honestly had no idea what to expect," said Crystal Coker, who's from Texas. "It was amazing ... I'm still shivering." Watch our footage in the video player above from the historic day.
The glasses distributed at Heine Brothers locations throughout Louisville and southern Indiana and those given away at the the WDRB booth at the Kentucky State Fair this week are NASA-certified and 100 percent safe for viewing the solar eclipse Monday.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
