Solar Eclipse

The beach at Cape Henlopen State Park in Delaware was the perfect place to watch the solar eclipse. Not only did I watch the eclipse, but also the people. Just about everyone turned their beach chairs toward the sun, leaned back, donned their special eyeglasses and watched as the moon passed between the Earth and sun. There was about 80% coverage. The temperature dropped about 10 degrees, the sand became cool and the light took on an auburn hue. It made you realize the enormity of the universe. The next time the US will experience a total solar eclipse will be in 2024.
