If you’re anything like me, by the time we had hit peak coverage of the sun during yesterday’s eclipse, you were responding to any talk of the eclipse like this:
It was just about all anyone could talk about yesterday – and I mean… well, slow news days happen. As much as we talked about it around here, could you imagine working at one of the big 24-hour news networks and covering it? Especially south of the border, where a thin line across the country actually got treated to a total eclipse of the sun.
Fox News anchor Shepard Smith was stuck on the desk during yesterday’s eclipse, and you can tell that he was totally over all the talk of the eclipse throughout. Have a look at this supercut of some of the best moments:
I particularly enjoyed the eclipse of the phone, and of the studio monitor… But nothing got me like when the sun started to re-emerge from behind the moon and he yelled “Jalapeña!”
I bet he would have been a lot more genuinely excited if he could be outside along the path of totality during the eclipse, because this video shared by a family in Idaho is breathtaking – apart from the rather startling commands from the app they used to guide them through the eclipse:
And here’s a timelapse of what it looked like in neighboring Wyoming:
Pretty cool stuff – and as weird as it looked around here during the eclipse yesterday, I can’t wait until 2024, when we’ll actually have a chance here in Canada to experience a total eclipse!
