Solar Eclipse Song (video): The Day the Day Became the Night (Key of G)

Product Description
The Next Total Solar Eclipse in the USA:
21 August 2017-- Get planning!

A song used to teach students about solar eclipses.
Video made possible by images from NASA.

Written in 1998 for the full solar eclipse in Maracaibo, Venezuela. When the sun was completely blocked by the moon and the birds stopped singing, the students around me broke out into song; the song I'd written for them. It was probably my best teaching moment ever!

Easy to learn, accompany on guitar. Difficult vocabulary made easy.

Lyrics/sheet music available (melody in key of D)


To hear the song (higher key: D) mp3 sample (voice and guitar)

Written and performed by Nora Louise Syran
