It’s amazing how quickly things have changed. I don’t think anyone would have foreseen to see the world as it is today a month ago. It was surreal to see the once vibrant streets of Broadway, now empty with boarded-up stores and restaurants.
The artists of Denver are fighting back against the doom and the gloom by creating works of art on top of the plywood that now adorns the many buildings on Broadway.
This Monday marks the first time that a total solar eclipse has been truly present across the United States from coast to coast since 1918. The last time a total eclipse was present, Denver had an ideal view of the event with 100% total coverage.
This time around, the citizens of Denver will only have 94% coverage and will sadly not get to experience all the special phenomenon that is present during a total eclipse. That doesn’t mean eclipse mania has not hit. Many Coloradoans are traveling up to our neighbors in Wyoming to view of the event and special eclipse viewing glasses are hard to find.
