One of the most incredible experiences I have ever had. Drove with my pops to Wyoming so that we could see the eclipse in totality.
The partial eclipse was beautiful. It was impressive to see the moon move in front of the sun, inch by inch. BUT, that was just the opening act!
As the moon crept closer and closer to the sun, the atmosphere and environment around us became very eerie. The contrast of all the colors around us changed, the temperature dropped, the Cicada began to make noise, as if dusk was approaching, and the horizon turned to a orange and pink color.
Then, almost suddenly, our surroundings went black. We had reached totality! I glanced up and was speechless. I had a general idea of what the total eclipse would look like and what the experience would be like, but this was more than I ever could have wished. I felt as if I was in a dream! At 11:45 in the morning, I was able to enjoy a sunset, see the stars, and peer up at an unimaginable diamond effect as the moon perfectly covered the sun. •THIS DAY WAS MAGICAL•
