Everyone is excited about this eclipse that is cutting a path across the U.S.
The last one that did this was almost 100 years ago in 1918.
It's a magnificent thing to see two amazing and large celestial spheres like this literally cross paths.
"Nice to meet you!"
We are so small in the realm of these universal things...it's almost funny how big we think we are.
Yet, we have so much ambition and desire to be bigger--to solve problems, innovate, and delve into the depths of the sea and to the far reaches of heavens.
You can blot out the sun, but we'll still figure out all the details on precisely when, where, and which goo goo goggles to wear so we don't hurt our eyes. ;-)
