Today Lindee, Mallory, Clara, their friend Keira, and I headed to Ninety Six National Historic Site, to be in the Path of Totality for the solar eclipse. It was absolutely amazing. We got there early, because we weren’t sure how much traffic we would run in to. As it turned out, it was exactly zero, but better safe than sorry. Anyway, they had activities for the kids set up for before the eclipse started, like this keychain Clara could punch out of the Big Dipper – they had several different constellations.
It was the craziest thing. Even as the sun got smaller and smaller, the pictures that we tried to take were still just a ball of fire – that’s how bright the sun is. Crazy! I did like how you could sort of see the corona around it as the visible sun got smaller & smaller. Just one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen.
