“…My camera was aimed right at the sun.  It was dark, and cold and it felt really eerie, but I was overwhelmed with emotion. I wondered what everyone else was thinking who was looking up at the sky in that moment, trying to take in this rare phenomenon.  In this age of polarizing politics and a world so divided, it didn’t matter what anyone believed that day.  So many of us stopped what we would normally do on a Monday, and stared at the sun.  It was larger than us, it was larger than life and for a moment, it brought us closer together.  Scientists say that the next full solar eclipse visible from the continental United States is not until April 8th, 2024.  I plan to watch it and photograph it in the path of totality, hopefully on a more peaceful planet...”  – From Olga B. K. Barron’s letter to the editor.
