I drove up to Wyoming last month to photograph the eclipse. It was my first totality. Very cool.
The beauty of the night sky can be as inspirational and uplifting as a total solar eclipse.
The basic idea is that meeting the requirements for the habitability of the Earth for observers makes it more likely that solar eclipses are possible.
C’mon. This is the first time in almost a century that a total eclipse will traverse the fruited plains from coast to coast.
The first pictures of an eclipse from the surface of another planet were taken by NASA’s Opportunity rover on the surface of Mars in March 2004.
