Bees act really strange when there’s a solar eclipse and scientists can’t explain it
The much-hyped total solar eclipse that streaked across the United States in 2017 changed how a lot of us behaved for a very short period of time. Instead of working or playing, we stared at the skies like a bunch of weirdos for a bit, but apparently humans weren't the only ones affected by the spectacle.
