This week, the April 8 total solar eclipse inspired Barbie-level coverage mania at NPR.

To make it into the "path of totality," humans are persisting in the face of flight delays and traffic to have transcendentexperiences and forge lifelong memories, perhaps by taking phone photos and avoiding eye damage. So grab your eclipse glasses and/or heed the words of a 104-year-old man who saw the 1932 total eclipse: "All I can say is that it was pretty near dark."

In the name of not further saturating the eclipse content lineup, the quiz has only one eclipse question (unless you count the "singer" eclipsed by Beyoncé). Good luck!
