The beauty of the night sky can be as inspirational and uplifting as a total solar eclipse.
Seeing it on TV can more readily be dismissed as no big deal, a pretty coincidence.
For those for short moments of totality, sun and moon fit hand and glove. Like a key and its lock.
The rabbi’s wife took the best photo of the morning that I saw, with an iPhone, using two pairs of eclipse glasses as her filter.

The best time and place to view total solar eclipses in our Solar System is just when and where there are observers to see them. Let that sink in.
