VIDEO: Experiencing the Eclipse with Our Aira Explorer

By: James Boehm, Aira Explorer



The first time I experienced a solar eclipse I was 13. And I had my sight.

Since then, I have completely lost my vision and thought my first eclipse, over 20 years ago, was my last.

On Aug. 21, millions of people watched as the moon passed in front of the sun, creating a solar eclipse.  In some places, it was completely dark for more than 2 minutes. Hopkinsville, Kentucky, was one of those places.

Luckily, my family and I got to experience this once-in-a-lifetime event and in Hopkinsville. And I will never forget it thanks to the teams at AT&T, Aira and Georgia Tech.
