"Open your eyes/Look up at the skies/And see..."


That's the first line I heard when I got back to my car — radio set to the "Classic Vinyl" channel — after my sunrise run this morning.

It was far from the most beautiful sunrise I've seen in my morning ritual...

... but there was a partial solar eclipse...

There were about 8 other humans gathered to witness the phenomenon they'd heard about, and this is the point where one young guy exclaimed, ironically, "The solar eclipse is legit!"

ADDED: If you think you need those special glasses to look at a sunrise solar eclipse: 1. You need to ask yourself how you can look at ANY sunrise, and 2. Just interpose your iPhone between your eyes and the sun and watch the event on your iPhone screen (and take your photos, too).
