En Puerto Rico, pudimos apreciar el eclipse solar parcialmente, pero en otras partes de Norteamérica se pudo ver a plenitud.
Según el portal Refinery29, varios fotógrafos viajaron para poder apreciar el histórico evento y capturar espectaculares imágenes, ya sea desde el inicio o durante el momento culminante.
Aquí te compartimos algunas:
The moment of totality. Experiencing my first total solar eclipse in the high country of Idaho as I partner with @LandRoverUSA in the new #Discovery. I spent a good chunk of the morning sitting in a meadow, waiting for it to happen. The two minutes where it got completely dark were surreal to say the least. The birds quieted, the sky over the valley below was sunset orange..
Yeah it got weird. Like a sunset without color. The treefrogs came on strong, and the birds. When we looked out over the valley streetlights were blinking on in the West. Then it stopped and the day went back to being day. So many people witnessed this one event. I'd like to think we are all better for sharing it. #eclipse
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.
