If you’re sick of all the stunning eclipse photographs streaming through your feeds, take a break with some poetry. Last week I joined Living Poetry members Bartholomew Barker, Anna Weaver and Angie Kirby at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences for another Poetry Science Cafe. This time the theme was the eclipse. We wrote poems during a presentation by Dr. Rachel Smith, Head of the Astronomy & Astrophysics Research Lab and Curator of Meteorites at the museum, and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at Appalachian State University. Hear what we came up with in this video, starting at the 55:44 mark.
I enjoyed a traffic-free #eclipseday at home yesterday. Our little corner of North Carolina experienced partial totality (93 percent) and I listened to the morning doves and watched our chickens peer out from below the deck during the darkest time. Hope you got to see something special if you were near the path!
