  1. Interesting thing that in Canada and prob most elsewhere where this is summer… the days get shorter but the Earth still heats up for about a month or so. I looked it up… something to do with heat physics. Anyhow, bring on the night… I dig it!

  2. Happy summer Marina!
    The video is very neat, but due to time constraints I had to skim through it in about 7 minutes.
    Pretty great!
    I Hera rolling in the summer flowers?

    • Happy Summer, sweetie! [raining here today – what a start to the official summer! 😉 ]
      The video was live streaming of the eclipse as they occurred in various places on earth where they were visible. Unfortunately I didn’t get to see it here [well it was just about visible and the sun rays just bleached it out! 😉 ]
      Hera is actually complaining because she doesn’t like the rain… 🌧⛈

  3. It’s the end of the world, yet again. Too bad we can’t see this eclipse. from the USA. The last “end of the world”, ring of fire, annular eclipse I witnessed and photographed was May 21, 2012. Happy Solstice, Marina.
