IT LOOKED LIKE THE MOON

Today with a solar eclipse of 70% in this region, I was curious to see what Zurich would look like under a gray veil. I went to the ETH building and its terrasse that offers a wide view of the city. I found hundreds of students prepared to watch the show. Kids and families had come to witness this. Food stands were ready to serve up goodies. And it turned out that the light didn't change all that much. But the real show was the scene, the people! To see how a natural occurrence can bring so many people together in happy curiosity was a real treat. So I went ahead and ignored the sun...

 

.... in fact, when I did look through the filter, the sun... well, it looked like the moon.
