Today was, hands down, the most incredible day of my life. I'm still in absolute awe. There are no words to describe the immeasurable beauty of today's events. No videos or pictures do justice to experiencing the solar eclipse in totality.
As darkness fell across the sky, and totality began, the people around us began to cheer, but quickly fell silent as we were all breathlessly taking in the scene in front of us. I burst out into tears, and I cannot describe the wonder I witnessed. (Here I go, crying again.) I was so fortunate to witness Baily's Beads, TWO Diamond Ring effects, the Sun's Corona, and Solar Prominences. My heart and mind have never been more full.
Look through the following pictures from people around Charleston, which give you the slightest glimpse into this phenomenal moment. ((Props to @rjdersch_bell for capturing some incredible photos, which I'm stealing to share with all of you!))
