Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
On Saturday, October 14, 2023, we watched the 'Ring of Fire' annular eclipse as it made its journey across the United States.
Our chosen location? The gulf coast of course!
I made some snacks and off we went to claim our spot for the watch party.
We ate, chatted with friends and watched the wildlife as the sky become darker and darker. The light changed as the eclispe progressed but didn't go fully dark. It was an odd feeling as the light changed from a "normal morning" to a murky twilight. You can see the difference in the light quality in these pictures taken as the eclipse was happening.
All of this happend midmorning for us in South Texas.
The next annular solar eclipse over North America won't be until 2046. So we were very happy to be able to watch this event. My son built a special viewing device so we were able to safely watch, but it didn't allow for taking picture. But what we saw through the device looked very much like the picture above.
Across town on another stretch of private beach there was an elaborate wedding taking place. I drove around and saw tons of people gathered to watch and just be together all over town. There were many family parties and get-togethers. It felt like a celebration all around us. I'm so glad we were able to watch this magical event.
Thanks for reading and wherever you are in the world, I hope you have a wonderful week.
