Today, August 21, 2017, a solar eclipse occurred across the United Sates! These only happen once every 38 YEARS!
For some of you that don’t know, a solar eclipse is when the moon blocks the sun from Earth, casting its shadow over us.
Whenever looking at an eclipse (or the sun in general), you have to wear protective glasses so you don’t hurt your eyesight. Oddly enough, the sun almost felt brighter during the eclipse, because the small sliver that was visible was just so powerful.
Here are a few pictures I took through the glasses:
I’m so happy I was fortunate enough to experience a solar eclipse like this! It was so incredible that I couldn’t even take my eyes off of it. I know some people even drove for hours to see the totality – I’m sure it was worth it!
Comment if you saw this solar eclipse, or if you’ve ever seen a different one, and share what it was like!
Thank you so much for reading my post! 🙂
