Like millions of Americans across the country, a handful of strangers gathered in front of my office building to participate in history. It was the first time in recent memory that not a single person on a San Francisco sidewalk was looking down at their phone or talking about Trump news (although it did occur to me that the moon was probably getting tired of all the winning). We didn’t see much more than slightly dimmed fog (another sign that SF is overpriced), but the above factors alone made the experience worth the hype. Here are few photos of the eclipse and (the often more entertaining shots of) people watching it. From HuffPo. From NASA. From UpRoxx. From Vox. And from Reuters. In Blinded by the Light, Bruce Springsteen sings, “Mama always told me not to look into the sights of the sun. Oh, but Mama, that’s where the fun is.” Turns out, at least for today, the boss was right.

+ Luckily, everyone followed the instructions when it came to viewing the eclipse safely. Well, almost everyone.

+ The International Space Station just pulled off the photobomb of a lifetime.

+ And if you missed this eclipse or can’t wait to do it again, don’t worry. The next one is only 2,422 days away. (Until then, it’s back to Trump news.)
