Total Solar Eclipse to Cross the USA, August 21st! DON’T MISS IT! I DIDN’T IN JUNE, 1954

Apparently the sun and moon are going to dance together some time around this coming August 21, 2017  It is not an every day occasion when the two meet to fete.

I was an undergraduate student at the University of Minnesota back  in the early 1950s, majoring in geography, minoring in Russian and   all sorts of other studies including geomorphology, astronomy, and Biochemistry then when tuition costs were $35 a quarter.

God blessed us that early A.M. a Saturday more glorious than ever, despite a fifty-fifty chance for clouds and rain…..and NEITHER HAPPENED…not a cloud in the sky at 6AM through the rest of the day.   I had heard about solar eclipses while in high school.  It was a rarity that such  “dances”  ever occurred in  the middle of a metropolitan community.

I didn’t want to miss it, but I didn’t want to go alone.  I easily coaxed my girl friend.  We tried to coax others and landed with six to be ready at six o’clock AM.

Do go!!! Don’t be late!!!  Protect your eyes..( We did….photo film pasted on sun glasses was then recommended.)   We gathered at the top of a hillside facing downtown St. Paul in the eastward distance.   Not a cloud to be seen.  Cool.  Silent except for the morning birds, especially the cardinals and arguments among  viewers nagging me  that this better be good, or else.   Who else would be dumb enough to get up early on a Saturday to see the moon pass in front of the sun.

Yes, the day went dark…not night dark, but darker than you have ever seen morning before breakfast!   Wind stirred, air conditioned cool, birds went silent, dogs howled, shadow attacked the world around everyone.

The collection of it all shut us  into silence and awe despite the brevity of the totality of the real dance.   Confidence in me and my reputation was elevated that morning.   No one thanked anyone for their participating in the show.  I was merely the usher.

The eclipse scheduled for this August 21.   Do go out of your way if you can to be a witness to this, one of the rarest of  amazing astronomical events ever to happen in your lifetime!   Plan for a good setting regardless of the clarity of the day.

Please note that all of the following statements about viewing the eclipse are made with two assumptions: (1) “weather permitting”, and (2) you MUST use special eye protection to look at the sun whenever it is not totally eclipsed! Read more about the important subject of eye safety during eclipses.

Get your eclipse glasses here!
(You HAVE to have them in order to safely watch the partial phases of the eclipse!)
