THE STORY BEHIND “108”

 

On August 21st, 2017 millions of Americans came together as “cosmic magic” swept away America’s troubles during the Great American Eclipse. For the first time in 99 years, the moon’s shadow raced across the U.S. becoming the most-observed and photographed moment in history. An estimated 215 million Americans tuned in for the joyful event, breaking NASA’s online viewing records by 7 times.

In celebration of the anniversary, New York-based fine artist Jon Carmichael publicly unveiled a photograph, which many say, could be the greatest photo of an eclipse ever achieved.

“My childhood dream has always been to go to space and see our world from above as one. I thought this may be the closest I ever get.”
