What an amazing, once in a lifetime, historic event! Waiting for one minute of spectacular beauty. It was incredible.
I feel so blessed to have been in the path of totality for the solar eclipse. There are no words to describe the excitement of watching the moon slowly obscure the light of the sun. The world dimmed, the temperature dropped, the crickets started chipping…breathtaking silence…
Then a shrill scream of excitement and a happy dance as my mother and I celebrated the momentous occasion.
(The last total solar eclipse to fall across the United States from coast to coast was in 1918)
