The big moment. The skies darkened, the air cooled off, and the sun itself transitioned from incomprehensibly bright to just an incredibly bright white glimmering diamond in the sky before the ring of totality took the stage. This photo doesn't really do totality justice - you can't see the red Bailey's bead on the right, or the distinct bright line between sun and moon. Or the din of the cheering crowd, which probably spooked the dogs more than the actual eclipse.
