Once in a lifetime. Well, only if you think a total solar eclipse is the end of the world that is.
This afternoon, starting at around 1:09pm and lasting until just after 4pm Eastern the sun will begin to be blotted out by the Moon. It’s funny how that works, the moon is the perfect size, and the perfect distance away from the earth to perfectly block out the sun. Almost like it was engineered that way, artificially.
I’m not going to start conspiracy theories today. Today is about science. Science that is made possible due to the eerie circumstances that made the earth and moon billions of years ago. Circumstances that were too perfect if you ask me.
If you’re reading this today, and you’re not in the path of the eclipse, you’re probably out of luck to see full totality. Check this handy chart from NASA though.
Let’s hope that I see you tomorrow, or else the Mayans really got things wrong.
