Success is a blacked out sun!

November 13th, 2012 § 2 comments

AMAZING! The eclipse was beautiful. I had a tear in my eye when it was all over: the result of a primal emotional spot deep within that the sight of a blacked out sun is able to reach. It’s hypnotic and when the eclipse is all over, it’s hard to grasp a clear memory. Standing in the shadow, it’s as if time stops and all awareness around you melts away.

This eclipse was suspenseful all the way to totality. Massive clouds filled the sky all throughout first contact, but a clearing arrived just in time. While some whispy clouds did travel in front of the eclipse during totality, it wasn’t enough to obstruct the view.

I have chosen to not worry too much about photography during the event, since it’s only a few minutes long (this one was 2 minutes and 3 seconds). So, my snapshot doesn’t do the eclipse justice – there are amazing images of eclipses out there. Google one!
