You guys: You do know…

What?

You guys: You kinda just made an intro.

Oh. Well there you have it!

 

So, as you probably know, today was a solar eclipse! DA DA DA DAAAAAAAAA! Sadly, where I live we did not get a full one, but it was nearly full, and IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! Here’s da story. There was a little event in our city where you could go and watch the eclipse, and they handed out free glasses and stuff, so we decided to go there. My brother made two pinhole cameras, which are cardstock with a hole cut in it that is filled with tin foil, and there is one (or numerous) holes in that, and if you hold the shadow of the paper on top of another piece of paper, you’ll see the sun, and when there’s an eclipse you’ll see what you can see of the sun. Sorry, that was an awful explanation, but it looks a little like this:

We got lunch on the way, but the line was huuuuuuuuuuuuuge. I got really nervous we’d miss the totality, which is the maximum point of the eclipse. Luckily, we finally got our food and hustled to the field where the event was happening. As we were walking there, we heard disappointed people saying there were no more glasses left. This made me extremely stressed, but we went on. When we eventually got there it was packed. Everyone was saying things like “OMG! It’s so cool!!!!” but we couldn’t see the big deal, because we couldn’t look at the sun. It was extremely hard to resist the temptation to do so. We decided to get in line for a chance to look at it from some really high power telescopes, even though the line was super long. In the meantime we decided to use the pinpoint cameras, and they turned out to be really fun! Then, things got even better! Somebody came around handing out glasses – just to the kids (or at least young people.) We passed as kids, and got the glasses. Well, they weren’t real glasses. They had ran out of those, so we just got what were like postcards with the eye protecting material in the middle. When you put them on they were so dark you could only see the brightest things, I.E. the sun. At first I was nervous I wouldn’t find the sun when all I could see was pitch black, but I did and it was so cool!!!!

It looked a lot like this:

The line continued to move as we studied the sun, both through the glasses and the pinpoint cameras. Finally, we got to the start if the line just before totality, when the moon is as in front of the sun as it will get. They asked us if we could wait a moment for them to take a photo using the strong telescope, then let us use it, which was perfect timing, because we got it ONE MINUTE AFTER TOTALITY which was ultra close to totality. It looked the same as with our glasses, but like 50 times larger. Then, we sat down and ate our lunch, while watching the moon slowly leave the sun. It was an unforgettable experience!
