Visibility V / V
It was again a wonderful experience - due to its rarity, perhaps one of the most beautiful experiences nature has to offer.
Once again, the time of perfection (3min 40s) felt so short. Of course, if the event lasted even half an hour, it might not feel so valuable.
Anyway, the whole trip organized by Ursa was perfect. The hotel was great with its all inclusive services and ‘no problems’ attitudes (which was a common saying when heard from the Turks anyway). The air was warm and sunny enough for most of the trip. Turkey, with its bazaars, histories and people, offered memorable experiences. You could go there again. And there were about a hundred like-minded people there.
What after that? Two complete eclipses (and 5 minutes 40 seconds of eclipsed sun) may already be a sufficient dose for one person.
But how do you know that even if you were still watching the eclipse north of the Svalbard in 2008 or in China in 2009 or in the Faroe Islands in 2015 or in America in 2017.
And maybe next time I’ll leave with the technology to rip and focus on tracking the eclipse with my own senses.
