“This was three minutes prior to totality. Everything had a very surreal silvery-blue sheen, sort of as if you were wearing a certain hue of sunglasses but the SUN IS DISAPPEARING. Minutes later, totality hit. The borders of the sky had a late sunset glow, the hills were washed in darkness, and in the center of it all was this floating ring of light. Deeply strange, totally rad, psychically shattering. No amount of scientific knowledge prepares you for the sense of actually being there.”


Rikky was working at the veterinary clinic in Moab, Utah when the eclipse happened. With ingenuity and questionable visual safety, she viewed the 84% eclipse through old x-rays, which she took these photographs through.
