At 8 and 10 years old, a solar eclipse is just another fun thing to do. Most events are once-in-a-lifetime for kids, within their context. As adults, they may (or may not) look back on how rare an opportunity it was. But today, they probably don't even realize that it was their parents' first solar eclipse as well.

The Big Picture

NASA has released this photo taken by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter on 21 August 2017. It's a view of the eclipse as seen from the satellite orbiting the Moon (the cause of the whole eclipse thing).


Label is mine.

There are gobs of photos in the thread. For direct photos of the sun, do a Google search.

By the way, there are some huge sunspots today. If you still have your eclipse glasses, you can actually see the spots. They're subtle.

Different eclipse. How cute is this photo of a Mapuche girl in southern Chile today, 14 DEC 2020.

Kids watching a total solar eclipse always brings a smile to me.
