“A bride watches the total solar eclipse through smoky glass in the western Siberian city of Tyumen on Friday, Aug. 1, 2008, with Troitsky (Trinity) Orthodox Monastery in the background. An enormous swathe of western Siberia was submerged in darkness Friday afternoon as the moon completely blocked out the sun, enrapturing huge crowds of Russians and foreign tourists.”
Note to self: This is the best wedding idea ever.
BTW fellow North Americans, Southerners and WNC residents: Look what’s happening here on August 21, 2017.
