Si no pudiste ver el eclipse solar directamente porque no tenías los lentes apropiados o estabas en el trabajo, aquí te presentamos las mejores fotografías de este evento.
Para empezar, éstas fueron las imágenes que compartió la NASA. En cada una se puede ver el movimiento del disco lunar.
Total(lit)y awesome! This beautiful image depicts a total solar eclipse that was seen on Monday, August 21, 2017 above Madras, Oregon. The eclipse revealed the Sun’s outer atmosphere, called the corona, which is otherwise too dim to see next to the bright Sun. Sweeping across a narrow portion of the contiguous United States, the total solar eclipse gave scientists a unique opportunity to study the Sun. Swipe to see other stages of the total solar eclipse! The Bailey’s Beads effect is visible in image two, as the Moon makes its final move over the Sun. Bailey’s Beads occur when the rugged lunar geography allows beads of sunlight to shine through in some places but not others. Image three depicts the Diamond Ring effect, which is created when rays of sunlight shine through edge-on lunar valleys creating the fleeting appearance of a single glistening diamond set in a bright ring around the Moon’s silhouette. Because Earth’s surface is mostly ocean, most eclipses are visible over land for only a short time, if at all. This year’s eclipse was different – its path stretched over land for nearly 90 minutes, giving scientists an unprecedented opportunity to make scientific mesurements from the ground.

También, algunos fotógrafos nos impresionaron con su manejo de la luz. Esta fotografía del eclipse sin duda es una de las mejores.
Aquí se puede apreciar en una sola imagen todo el fenómeno. ¿Cuál es tu momento favorito?
Las fotos que capturan la sorpresa de la gente también son hermosas. No todos los días nos maravillamos por la naturaleza.
My friend is such an incredible writer. His words always move me. Brilliant! #Repost @jedidiahjenkins ・・・ I saw a couple articles yesterday about the loss of productivity caused by the eclipse. Something like $700m lost because of ‘distracted employees.’ Ha! Makes me laugh. That we could even have the conversation. Something as miraculous and strange as the sky going black at 1:30pm for two minutes, and we talk about money. I mean, I don’t mean to be critical. It is interesting to know how much a few minutes of our times is worth, I guess. But the fact that our country is suffering a divided conscience, a broken heart, and a polarized confusion like nothing I’ve seen in my life… and the sky would go black, inviting every single human being in its path to stop for a few minutes and gaze, is a bit of a miracle, a cosmic gift. And it sliced right across the whole damn country as if on purpose. . As I stood there, I thought how lovely unity is, but it only comes from simple problems. Seems that the only thing that would bring us all together is a giant meteor or alien invasion. Science and race and cultural narratives and American myths… these things are complex and our animal brains struggle. A big black orb in the sky, wow, we can all grasp that. . I thought about how long ago they predicted this eclipse. There’s a NYTimes article from 1932 speaking about the eclipse on August 21st, 2017 like some futuristic fantasy. If science can so accurately predict the movements of the moon and the earth, I wonder why so many people disbelieve the chorus of scientists about our changing climate. I wonder if science’s power of prediction is limitless. If everything is just complex math. Like, at some point in our future, will a doctor be able to predict a distant mood swing I’ll have in 2061. . I thought about the people I was with, their component parts of joy, curiosity, kindness, gratitude, and mischief… and how I get to live life with them…and I get to cry with them… usually at beauty. . 📷: @orionpahl #eclipse #nashvilleeclipse
¿Qué te parecería estar saltando en paracaídas cuando ocurrió el eclipse? Seguramente fue un momento inolvidable.
Sin duda este es un evento que recordaremos por su gran belleza y por las personas con las que lo compartimos.
