Many people have described seeing a solar eclipse as somewhat of a spiritual epiphany. It is easy at such times to feel deeply one's place in the Cosmos, to inwardly grasp the turning of the great spheres overhead, to visualize the order, grace, and glory of creation.

One can experience the same awe by standing on the rim of the Grand Canyon, or watching waves come in at the seashore. But there's something special about the very transience (and rarity) of an eclipse that rams the point home all the more forcefully. Just imagine if you could not observe a sunset every evening, but only once or twice in a lifetime.

"The Heavens declare the Glory of God, and the firmament His handiwork."
