Solar Eclipse: August 21, 2017

Hello Everyone!


Random picture from my balcony a few hours after the Solar Eclipse and rain


Today's post was unplanned, but I wanted to write a quick post about the Solar Eclipse that took place today.

As many of you may already I know, I live in South Carolina and we were able to view 100% totality of the solar eclipse. This was such a major event that it was reported South Carolina had over 500,000 vistors to witness this amazing event.

I watched it live on TV, but nonetheless it was a beautiful sight to see. (There were issues with some of the solar eclipse glasses not being safe so I skipped it and watched it on TV.  I wasn't going to risk my vision) As I was sitting in the living room it became totally dark and then the sky began to become light again.


I can't really explain it, but I agree with so many people that were commenting that it felt like a calming spiritual moment during the eclipse. I know that I didn't technically go outside, but even if I had I don't think I would've taken a picture. This was one of the moments I truly wanted to enjoy the beauty nature even if I did view it on TV.


Wishing everyone a wonderful week :)

    1. I think you would've been amazed if you saw it in person. If you were down here I could see you going outside to see the eclispe. I'm all late lol, but I was having issues with my phone. I wasn't getting most of my incoming texts. I miss you too friend! You should come for a visit sometime!

  3. That's so amazing that you guys got to witness the full eclipse in SC! I would have loved to seen it get compelety dark outside. I'm so excited we got to witness an eclipse since I never saw one before. The energy was crazy, but your right that it was also calming. It didn't get dark here, but it did look kind of muddy/greenish outside followed by a yellow/orange kind of like after it storms!

    1. It felt kinda eerie when it suddenly got completely dark outside, during the elcispe it was so beautiful. I didn't go outside, but it was beautiful nonetheless when I saw it on live on TV!

    1. South Carolina was the last state in the eclispe's path, and to see it 100% totality was amazing! There were so many beautiful pictures taken by others!

  7. Oh, you got some pictures a few hours, that's awesome! I didn't look up at the skies, but I did go out early in the morning, and saw the strange weather turning darker. It never got that dark here in California. What a sight that must have been to see it get totally dark where you live in So. Carolina. I'm glad we got to experience history together, Pilar. : )

    1. That was my main concern since some of the glasses weren't safe. I didn't want to risk my vision since I already wear glasses, so I looked at it on tv.
