Experiencing Totality (Oregon) - 2017 Total Solar Eclipse
Experiencing totality. On August 21, 2017 at 10:17am day turned to night for nearly two minutes during a total solar eclipse! It slowly became colder and darker after 9:07am when the sun was partially eclipsed but at 10:17am, when totality hit, what an eerie atmosphere it created. Business lights turned on, the horizon glowed with what looked like a sunset in all directions, shadows faded, stars became visible, and the sun's corona radiated from behind the moon with the brightest white light I've ever seen. Everyone was giddy.
