While Monday's total solar eclipse in the U.S. will be a once-in-a-lifetime sky show for millions, there's a small group of people who have experienced it all before and they can't get enough of it.Russo, a psychologist in Ireland who wrote a book about people's eclipse experiences, said some people find the experience life-changing.Monday's eclipse will cut a 112-kilometer-wide path of totality across the country, when the moon moves between Earth and the sun, blocking it for as much as 2 1/2 minutes. It's the first coast-to-coast full eclipse since 1918 . Schneider, who got a telescope at age 5, planned out his first eclipse precisely.Now Schneider takes his grown daughter with him to eclipses. And he invented what he calls the "lug-o-scope," a telescope that folds into its own luggage to make his eclipse-chasing easier.A veteran of 28 eclipses, Espenak often leads groups of some 50 people to view eclipses, lecturing both about the beauty and the science.Donald Liebenberg has seen and blogged about his 26 eclipses for Clemson University, where he does research.This eclipse is coming directly to them in South Carolina.
