Like many across the U.S., we took a break from our work Monday to watch the partial solar eclipse.
We busted out our glasses and homemade viewers and huddled around the window to watch the show. Some of us went a little overboard, but hey–what’s life if you don’t live it in style?
The clouds tried to steal the show early on, but they eventually cleared up so we could see the full 71% blackout. Even with cloudy skies, the view from our pinhole cameras was still awe-inspiring.
Here are two of my personal favorites from the web. As seen from an airplane, by Babak Tafreshi for National Geographic, and a silhouette of the International Space Station by Bill Ingalls for NASA.
At moments like these the enormity of the universe hits us full on. But rather than be scared by it, instead we’re brought together by its staggering beauty.
