How is it that we can spend four weeks this summer in the path of totality for the solar eclipse – but when it actually comes time to view the eclipse we’re in Arizona! Not cool. Luckily Nasa TV had it dialed in pretty well and I watched as the first eclipse took place in Oregon. This visual was amazing – but what I kept hoping for was footage of the surrounding area. I wanted to see the light become dark and back to light in just minutes.
Luckily, social media did not disappoint and each lucky friend described their incredible experience witnessing it from the path of totality. Those that thought there was too much hype admitted that all the hype was worth it. Life changing. The light to dark. The change in temperature. The excitement of the crowds watching, collectively cheering. I was feeling like I was left out the coolest party in the country. The fact that we witnessed a partial eclipse in Arizona was completely overshadowed!
Saw this in Cornwall (England) many years ago and it was incredible.
Every bird stopped singing, I was hand rearing baby Barn Owls and they snuggled into my neck as it got darker.
Will never forget the feeling of cold as the world went dark.
