the day of the eclipse

It was all so very strange. Not a total eclipse, but the temperature went down 4 degrees , the shadows changed and became somewhat fuzzy and the quality of light was like that in a winter evening. It was like being in a Magritte painting.
No wonder the ancients thought it was the end of the world.
We are more savy, more sophisticated now and yet everyone was in awe.
Office workers were out on the street looking up, telescopes were set up so that passes by could take a look and school kids performed experiments and giggled nervously.

Next visible one will be in 24 years.
