The Path of Totality: Your Solar Eclipse Celestial Playlist

Map credit:

The Great American Eclipse

The first total solar eclipse since 1918 to glide across the United States, from coast to shining coast, has come and gone, but the sense of awe at the magnificence of this celestial occurrence will linger for some time to come.

From atheist spectators coming away with a new sense of spirituality, to stargazers finding a sudden desire to pursue the study of science, to the reports of confused roosters crowing and birds going to sleep, to simply watching it on television or online, everyone and everything has emerged anew, and many, like me, were humbled at the vastness, power and mystery of the universe and its sacred geometry.

Here is a playlist to keep you in the loving vibe of the historic Sun-Moon🌞 🌝 💘🌑 hookup.
