North Americans welcomed this year’s total solar eclipse with excitement from coast to coast.
Yesterday’s eclipse was the first full eclipse of the sun visible in North America in nearly 40 years.
Almost everyone I know was excited to see the natural phenomenon in person. Lots of us stepped outside in the middle of the work day to check it out.
All across the country, people were stocking up on eclipse glasses and solar filters for their cameras, or getting crafty by creating their own eclipse viewing cereal boxes.
I didn’t even try to get a picture of the eclipse, because I knew my iPhone couldn’t handle it.
I decided to leave the photography work to the experts — and that was a good choice.
One eclipse watcher caught an incredible image that might show more than just the sun and the moon. Some people are even saying his photograph shows God.
When heading out to photograph the full solar eclipse, I bet lots of us were hoping to get a picture like this one.
Unfortunately, without professional cameras and expensive equipment, most pictures turned out a little less high resolution.
One eclipse watcher, however, managed to capture something incredible. This is Jeremy Nickens, who says he photographed the eclipse from Silver Spring, Maryland
Jeremy captured this image of the eclipse peeking out from behind the clouds. But there’s something even more stunning here. Do you see the figure of a man behind the eclipse?
Plenty of other eclipse watchers took pictures of the sun and moon in the clouds, but the shadow figure that appeared in Jeremy’s photograph was nowhere to be seen, making it that much more interesting
