And then suddenly it brightened. I threw on my eclipse glasses to see the diamond ring! It lasted only a split second. Then the tiny sliver of sun grew into a crescent and eventually full again. Even the tiniest bit of the sun showing was bright enough to make it look like daytime again instead of night. It was an amazing thing to see. Even the 60 mile traffic jam afteward, in which we crawled 20 miles in 4 hours, was worth it. I'm so glad I was able to see it.
