Description

The earth is unique in that the size of its sun and moon--and the distance between all these celestial bodies--makes it such that during a total solar eclipse the sun is just barely blocked by the moon while the sun's corona is still visible. It is an event that inspires awe, humility, and a hint of fear as darkness overtakes midday light. But it is also a fleeting moment--lasting only a minute or so--hence the title, "This Too Shall Pass." I witnessed the total solar eclipse in Oregon in summer of 2017, and I took this photo in the midst of "totality," when the sun is fully blocked by the moon.
