JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 210 :: total eclipse

21 Aug

Kind Reminders.

What a day! Historical. Amazing. Scientifically mind-boggling…. and on top of all that…. I made this! A box. A magic box. I watched the eclipse through this box.

We couldn’t track down the special glasses in time to replace the recalled ones that Justin found. But, it made me realize this: In such a high-tech world it’s easy to forget how things actually work. Which is why this box was the second attempt at an eclipse watching box that I made today. My first one was too small. But then I figured it out. (Thanks Google!)

Just. In. Time.

I watched the sun and the moon through the pinhole reflection in my box. But the COOLEST thing I saw today was the shadows being cast across everything.

Onto my desk:

From the trees…

Across the parking lot…

And the sides of the building…

So many moon shapes. Everywhere I looked.

It was literally eye-opening on a day when we were all told to keep our eyes shut – or at least protected. What a very, very, very cool thing to witness in the middle of the day. It was a BIG DEAL, of course, but also a good reminder to stay fascinated, and illuminated, and connected with the Earth we all call home.

How kind.

More tomorrow….

    Sooooo cool! Even though it was overcast in Chicago, if you looked through the special glasses you could see the moon & sun through the haze. What an incredible universe we live in!
