Words are not sufficient to describe seeing a total eclipse of the sun in person. I have dreamed of seeing a total eclipse my entire life. I've been watching eclipse photography since the early 80's as it progressed from the film era into digital. I've seen countless photos of eclipses from around the world. Nothing prepared me for the experience. As the sun winked out of view in my viewing glasses, and I took them off, I was it a totally different world. The sun replaced by a black hole, the brightest thing in the sky a ring of light with billowing curtains of gossamer flowing from it. It was if I was transported to another planet, so profound was the change from partial eclipse to totality. Superlatives seem an insult.
