In the span of a couple of minutes, as a fiery glow encircled the moon at the moment of totality, the sun seemed to set and rise again. The temperature dropped. Hues of orange and red rimmed the horizon then faded away. Stars emerged then vanished. The Great American Eclipse arrived as promised, and those both inside the path of totality and outside of it were not disappointed.
