Eclipse-and we're not talking vampires

One of the pleasures I have received from being in
It was just like in the movies, a growing darkness over the land that spreads slowly at first then rapidly darkens. Soon it was pitch-black; just like at night with the exception it was nearly 9:30am in the morning. Kids cried out with excitement, teachers all gazed up at the sky, some children even ran around screaming it was just such an interesting phenomena. As for me, I looked up in wonder, I walked around amazed that street lights need be on in the morning; that mere minutes ago it was a bright, hot sunny day. It was beautiful, it was frightening, it was enthralling all the same.
When I looked up once more the eclipse began to wane and soon a bright light shot from the sky. Kids were rushed inside so as not to hurt their eyes, I quickly looked away but was granted a headache for my brief glance. I found myself a pair of glasses once more and saw the most spectacular sight; a sliver of the sun just as you see a sliver of the moon on some clear night skies. It was beautiful. That simple really and because I love the night I was sad to see it go but pleased it came to me in the day.
