For those who may have missed it, Ozzy Osbourne performing “Bark At The Moon” at Moonstock in Carterville, Illinois back on August 21, 2017 during the total solar eclipse, was something those lucky concert-goers will never forget.
The 2017 solar eclipse was dubbed by the media as “Great American Eclipse.” The total solar eclipse was visible within a band that spanned the entire contiguous United States, passing from the Pacific to the Atlantic coasts. Totality, is when the moon completely obscures the sun.
When Ozzy Osbourne begins playing “Bark At The Moon” it basically looks like dusk outside, but within a few minutes the stage and everything around it descend into complete darkness, with the band illuminated by stage lights as if it were late night. The person shooting the footage did a good job of capturing the eclipse itself, too. By the time the tune ends, the moon has already begun to move away from the sun, and daylight creeps back in. The whole thing was absolutely surreal! Perfect execution and planning by all those involved.

Leave to the Prince Of Darkness to be able to pull something like this off. Just as they went into the iconic bridge of Bark At The Moon, the actual moon found its way perfectly over the sun and the crowd proceeded to lose their minds!
