The appearance of a solar total eclipse in 1973 differed in appearance from the eclipse that took place on August 21st, 2017.
There is an explanation that makes sense as to why. I am not 100% sure if that is the reason. However, I am putting it out there, explained in the text attached below the pics. If anyone has a different take on it, or a different theory, feel free to comment.
