Total Eclipse of the Sun Crossing Northern Argentina

I live and work  in my half acre of garden  paradise.  Every visit, every hour of “work” is a pleasure….actually a drug I’ve been hooked on since I was principle manager of our neighborhood’s Victory Garden beginning in 1942.

Somewhere between 1942 and 1945, the primary years of our American involvement in World War II, I became aware of the event of the total eclipse of the Sun.  Not that there was at that time any actual arrival of such an eclipse either in Minnesota or anywhere in these United States.   It could have been Biblical in its arrival into my mind.   I only remember when laboring and pretending to  play games weeding or killing potato beetles  in the Victory Garden I managed at my age going on eight years old,  I was already aware the Sun might  some day be covered by the moon for awhile as the moon travels across the sky.  I think I learned so in Sunday Bible School.

I had to wait till June, 1976, when the Sun while shining across St. Paul and Minneapolis early one morning,  its radiance would be completely blocked for a period of time by the moon.   If so strange things might occur on Mother Earth with in the blocked radiance.

This event was to occur around 6:30AM on this one and only Saturday June morning in a lifetime.

I  and some friends of mine were graduating from the University of Minnesota that very June the very next week.  Total eclipses of the Sun were more into my line of graduation study than any of the half dozen of sleepy heads I had coaxed into awakening that 5:30AM to travel and meet at some hillside overlooking a broad eastern slope with downtown St. Paul on the far left,  guessing in amateur language what we were supposed to enjoy, experience, remember, or hate!

We waited.  We waited some more and then remarks, buy no threats yet…..”THIS BETTER BE GOOD, GLENN!!!    We waited some more…..and then it began…..on  the upper left?!?

We had to protect our eyes.  I used sunglasses covered with photo print tint.

It took five more minutes before all of us saw that beginning of the blockage on the  left of the Sun was indeed the curve of the Moon.

Silence reigned for nearly an hour!   When the Total Eclipse arrived,  our Earth in view fell under a profound shadow stirring  cool wind  and noisy plants.  Some four legged dogs howled.   We two leggeds stood stunned.

Clouds and rain were forecast for that morning.

Rain is not in the forecast among those in San Juan, Argentina.  Nor is it throughout the path across the North of that country.   Take the time…..Take the travel…..There is nothing to sell except BEING THERE and EXPERIENCING an Earth maximum personally!!
