Tell Me About Your Eclipse Experience

Posted by terrepruitt on August 21, 2017

So I missed it. The solar eclipse. The whole thing. It just seemed like a regular summer day, as in the sky was somewhat hazy. I am sure you already know the difference between a SOLAR eclipse and a LUNAR eclipse is a solar eclipse is when the New moon moves between the sun and the earth, blocking the sun and a lunar eclipse is the earth casting a shadow on the full moon. The next solar eclipse we will be able to see in the United States is in 2024 and it won’t go across the ENTIRE United States like today’s did. It looks like it might be in Arizona, New Mexico, and/Texas and the go up and east from there.

Time and Date has a lot of information on eclipses.

So many people traveled to different states and different locations to see it. I didn’t even look out my window. I was, too busy try to keep my little cat from looking outside. I didn’t want to end up with a blind cat.

There were people and places (businesses) having eclipse parties. There were a lot of places that were cashing in on the whole thing.

Since I missed it, I would love to hear your 2017 Eclipse story.  So what is your story? What did you do? Do you have any pictures?

  1. I missed it also. It was overcast (north of Chicago). Some of my relatives consider it bad luck to be out in a solar eclipse, so the cloud cover was perfect for them.

    • Yeah, I think it might have been too overcast here for me to see anything, but I was afraid to look! 🙂

      Do YOU consider it to be bad luck?

      • I don’t think it is bad luck, but I do think there are more influences than we are willing to admit. For example, the full moon is sometimes viewed as a time of lunacy for some sensitive people. We are influenced by the magnetosphere. The magnetosphere has a “tail” on the opposite side of the sun. The moon moves through this magnetotail for six days around the full moon. Because of that, I think there might be a link between lunacy and something real affecting some people. Now for the eclipse, it is the new moon and not the full moon, so the magnetosphere is not involved in the same way, but something else might be. So, I don’t think it involves “luck”, but perhaps unknown influences we are unaware of.


        • Oh, many people, at least those that work with the public, will completely agree that the FULL moon affects people. It IS a time of total crazy. I don’t know why . . . your explanation is the first I have heard of that. I just know that it is true. I was just curious as to if you believed it. I haven’t heard much about what people believe in regards to it, I’ve had just heard all the excitement about it. 🙂

    Oh boy, it was amazing where I am at, the sky was a perfect shade of blue and the glasses they have now are amazing – Incredible experience – I was soaking it all in, the energy was quiet, the birds were quiet, there were no cars on the road in my neighborhood. The neighbors were all gathering and watching. and when the sun was totally blocked many people started cheering and we were all so glad we were experiencing the moment together. It was so dark during the total eclipse that the street lights came on – and then it was over but what an incredible minute. It felt like a good luck experience rather than bad luck, and so different than what I remember as a kid before there were the amazing eclipse viewing glasses. I have a picture – I will send it to you!
