The total solar Eclipse-a-palooza happened on August 21st and stretched coast to coast from South Carolina to Oregon. For background purposes, eclipses happen when the moon orbits between the earth and sun.
I made plans with a group of friends to head to Glendo, Wyoming, but the enthusiasm among my crowd waned and it ended up being just me on another solo adventure.
Since I could only be in one location for the eclipse, I wanted to make a home movie based on video and photos taken by my friends and neighbors from across the country. It was a strange experience. I can see how medieval people would have been freaked out during a total eclipse.
These days, big-time celestial events bring people together – family reunions, informal gatherings, and community festivals.
