Yesterday throughout the United States people were looking up at the sky with special glasses on. The glasses were designed to block the rays of the sun that the moon didn’t block. It was one of those events that doesn’t happen often. The moon was lined up between the sun and the earth for a limited time. In some places it was close to a 100% blockage. To others like where I live it was closer to 80. Still it was a sight that people were lined up to see with glasses in place. Some places went dark in the middle of the day. Others like mine became dull and reminded me of the darkened horizon before the sun sets.
