This is the eclipse as viewed from Floyds Knobs, IN at 96% . Floyds Knobs is where I live. Louisville, KY is about 5 miles south from here. Hopkinsville, KY, which is about 2hrs  SW, had a total eclipse which meant they went totally dark. Awesome!


Eclispes of Unity

I saw it today

The eclipse happened

And I saw the crecent shape of the orange sun

The moon shadow was black, leaving a smile for awhile

Oh, I was jubilant, dancing like a child

It was a glorious few moments

As all that mattered was in the sky

And others dropped their hate and loved one another

Together across the USA

We watched something bigger than ourselves

I rejoiced and said, "Hallelujah!"

Please, cannot we hold on to this beauty of unity

For more than we are?

I love the joy you express at seeing this beautiful event on the universe, and the effect it had on people. If only the latter would last! Thanks for sharing this. We only had part of the eclipse show here, but it was beautiful!

Simply lovely. It seems to take something that's bigger than ourselves to create unity.
