The Black Sun

The corona of the total solar eclipse of 29 March 2006 in Side near Antalya in Turkey appeared undisturbed by clouds and changed my life forever.
Science explains so effortlessly why solar eclipses occur that it doesn’t seem to be anything special anymore.
But when the daylight suddenly fades in the middle of the day and the huge black shadow wall appears on the horizon and occupies the sky in a matter of seconds, everything changes forever and suddenly it feels like a cosmic god is speaking. This moment burns eternally into the heart and no one can escape the emotional power of this event.
