You might have noticed a little something happen at 2:58 p.m. today – a solar eclipse, the first in the U.S. in 38 years. For a couple minutes, the blazing afternoon summer sun briefly became bearable as the moon came between the sun and the earth.
At the peak of the solar eclipse in South Florida, 80 percent of the sun was covered, and at least that percentage of Miamians were taking selfies with eclipse glasses on.
This is what it looked like.
The kiddies loved it.
So did the adults.
If you never looked down, you missed out. The eclipse made all kinds of crazy shadow patterns, too.
If you missed it, it’s OK – you only have to wait until 2024 for the next one in the U.S. At least you were not this guy, burning your retinas.
