The Great Eclipse

The sun is 400 times farther away from our planet than the moon and also 400 times larger than the moon.  Because of this ratio of size and distance, the moon will cover the sun today creating a total solar eclipse which will be visible here in North America from anywhere within the totality plain.

In other words…

We will be in the dark for a  moment.  The sun, hundreds of times larger than the moon will yield to our diminutive satellite and become obscured.  Cosmic forces are at work here, perhaps teaching us that even the most powerful, central, important and relied upon elements in our lives can and will go offline.

When that happens, what we do during that moment in the dark will make all the difference.

      1. To be honest, I didn’t even look. It’s been cloudy and a bit rainy here these past few days. In all the hustle and bustle, I forgot to even look up at the sky. BUT I turned on the news and got my fill of the American eclipse! :). It was beautiful to see and a bit spooky too. Felt like we just needed to see a witch go by with a broomstick.
