“…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.
