Did anyone watch the solar eclipse? Unfortunately for me, the eclipse only lasted a few minutes and it only looked like clouds passing by the sun. However, I have seen some extraordinary pictures and it's an utterly beautiful phenomenon. Also, it was somewhat relieving to see the American people set aside their bickering for a short while and all come together to enjoy something so rare and exciting.
