I’ve seen so many eclipses on YouTube and around the internet but it’s surprisingly rare for me to see a total blackout. It may only have been for a split second but to see the world plunged into black during the day is just awesome.
If like me you’re fascinated by our place in the universe and get totally bonkers excited by things like this, you’ll love this post from the BBC.
So here’s what a total solar eclipse looks like. The sun is eclipsed momentarily before emerging within a halo around the passing moon.
It really is a beautiful thing. Even more so when you consider the circumstances required to produce such a phenomena.
