Total or partial solar eclipses can only happen at the new moon phase when the sun and the moon are in conjunction when seen from Earth.
Folks in OR likely felt the visceral effect of the moon's shadow, OR umbra, as it blanketed the ground in chilling darkness.
Another called the eclipse "amazing". Anchored from the College of Charleston, in SC - we showed you views of the eclipse that only NASA could. If you missed the big event or, like me, regret not traveling to the path of totality to watch the sun go completely dark, not to worry - you'll have another chance in less than seven years.
Contrary to the Indigenous Americans and my own beliefs, a Christian American couple: Samantha and Camron: took their wedding vows today, exactly at the moment of the total eclipse in St. Joseph, Missouri, USA.
If we are lucky enough to still be around on September 14, 2099, the solar eclipse's path of totality will pass straight through Fargo.
Beginning at 12:15 p.m. the VHS students arrived in the new gym, to be greeted by Dr. Joe Nighswander, with an "We want you to have an awesome experience". The site was fantastic - with the sun's corona reaching out as far as the eclipsed sun was wide.
April Rosenthal, the visitor who'd been in Casper for a month, said she and her husband are already making plans for the next one.
Anyway, Hopkinsville can use the economic boost that 150,000 people can offer when they invade a typical small Southern town of 32,000 for a day and a half. Other than impending insanity, the only explanation that comes to mind is that here is a major event shared by everyone in our country that doesn't involve politics. I looked beyond all that, at least for a minute. Still, superstitions abounded about what they "meant".
One superstition that persisted down through the ages, for example, was that an eclipse was a portent of doom for a king. The Chinese must have had a low regard for the intelligence of the cosmic powers. Perhaps he left the White House shortly before the eclipse in order to divert the ancient royal curse. His regular column, "Just Saying", runs evry week in The Free Press. Yes, I know, Huntingsburg happens to be in IN, but it is only 135 miles from Hopkinsville. These glasses were a bit different than the others and to my surprise when shooting I was able to also angle them to capture some pretty rad lens flares and abstract shapes being reflected on the backside of the lenses. However, despite my cultural differences, I wish the couple a long and happy married life and pray for a happy, healthy long life for the baby girl.
