We had only a partial solar eclipse .
But what a sight it was! Here are some impressions of what it felt like to see our small moon swallow up the sun. Some are more literal and some are not.
It made me think of the last solar eclipse I viewed. Bombay, February 1980. I was 8. A total eclipse passed through India but not through Bombay where I lived. Just like in San Jose today, we experienced a partial eclipse. My sister built a pinhole device to view the sun. I thought she was so clever to project the sun on the floor.
It was magical for an 8 year old. Today was just as magical.
