There are many types of eclipse but what happen today throws a straight look to our mighty Sun. Though some of the Earth’s population did not witness this celestial event, technology bridge the gap for those who cannot have that real naked-eye experience. On that note, thanks to livestream channels provided by Youtube, I had my front row reel screening of what take place on that Moon-and-Sun fusion moment.
On some parts of the globe were the Sun’s visibility was apparent in the sky, Partial Solar eclipse took place particularly in the Caribbean region. Due to unforeseen nature of weather, like accumulation of clouds from a tropical depression, the Sun did not appear as expected. As a remedy for my disappointment, I watched the live video on Youtube channels like The New York Times, National Geographic and the superb 360 live record of the Sun itself powered by Time. What I love about Time’s way of how they captivated this astronomical event was that a cursor was placed on the viewing screen to let its audience rotate the camera from either sides: right, left, up or down. Isn’t that GREAT?
It was a wonderment scenery when the Moon was approaching the Sun slowly and then the heavens turned into gray. What I thought about since the beginning I have had an idea of eclipse was that the place where this phenomenon transpired will put into darkness for a matter of time. On the contrary, it appeared to me that the everything turned to gray. =/
For now, I just have to be appreciate what I had seen. I hope that in God’s time, I could have a chance to have a Moon-to-Sun encounter in another territory of my choosing. The Almighty God already knows what I mean, I leave it up to him. 😀
