  1. Amazing photo.

    One thing I can say after having seen it in person is that the white parts are constantly in motion, moving fluidly. Still waiting for the day when someone can achieve a video where each frame is an HDR like this.

  2. I drove up from Colorado and camped for 3 days in the Medicine Bow for this. Scouted a beautiful spot to summit for the show. Right before the eclipse, the entire valley went silent. It was truly one of the most surreal experiences of my life. I may never have the opportunity to see this again and I will never forget it. Thanks so much for posting this imagine, which I recall often in my head. It’s very hard to describe this to people that have never seen a total eclipse. I also agree with the post about constant movement. It was “other worldly”

  3. If you have seen an eclipse you know that there is no reflected light whatsoever.

    It is the only time I have seen deep unwavering liquid metallic black. It was and is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.

  4. I was there!

    My first ever trip to the US was specifically to view this eclipse. I researched climate data in all the states the path of totality would pass through, to determine the greatest chance of clear skies. Turns out I needn’t have bothered, because it was clear pretty much everywhere. I settled on Tennessee, and watched it from my htel’s car park in Nashville. Lots of people milling around, including a group of school children and teachers.

    Good times. They were giving out free eclipse-viewing glasses, which were 100 times better made than the shoddy one I made at home. They were also giving out Clifford the Dog plushies for some reason.

    The August heat slowly became bearable, and the sky dimmed as more of the sun was covered. At totality, the sky was dim blue, and the moon was pitch black, surrounded by the bright corona, so it looked like someone had poked a hole in the sky. Super weird. Definitely worth the trip!
