Did you get to see the solar eclipse in your area by watching it 'live' on youtube or Tvs?
I watched it on Nasa youtube channel and it was pretty awesome. It's totally cool to be able to experienced it yourself. As they said, the eerie feelings and the temperature drop was pretty surreal. To top it off, the last time it happened was around 99 years ago in the 1800s.
I kind of wonder how the people in the older civilizations would have felt when they saw or experienced the eclipse. During that time, there are already people who studied the stars. And, they could do impressive calculations to predict the eclipse.
They would have a better view of the sky too. Compared to the light pollutions of our cities at night. Of course, with the technology that we have today, we now know more then the people back then. Or, do we?
