In a rare turn of events, thousands and thousands of Americans left the comfort of inside and went outside on Monday.

The percentage of people who went outside to observe the sky yesterday ranges from “a lot of people” to “everyone you know”—enough for Netflix to note a 10 percent drop in viewership.

The Great Total Solar Eclipse, despite having no recognizable leads in its cast, earned great reviews from most viewers (notably Sarah Jessica Parker), who were amazed with the beauty they could encounter if they step outside for a bit.


IndieWire notes that “this is the closest that Netflix has come to releasing viewership numbers.”
