NYC Totality 2079

Hypothetical depiction of the Solar Eclipse totality that will occur over New York City on 1 May 2079 for those of us who will be well over 100 or not around for this momentous event.

Created from an photograph of Freedom Tower, New York, NY (taken on 10 December 2023) and totality (solar eclipse), Moose River/Jackman, ME (taken on 8 April 2024).

Maybe it's a look into the future, but for me, it's a look into the past.
I have already seen the dark side of the world, and sometimes I look back and this is what the past looks like.

William Sutherland replied to Kayleigh:

Unfortunately Kayleigh, in many cases the past is the future and the future is the past. And yes, Freedom Tower can be a reflection of this dark past -- one only need look back to 9/11. :( Human history and astronomical events tend to repeat themselves, the former many times in unpleasant ways. Fortunately after such eclipses, light returns. Sadly, we're still waiting for the Light when it comes to the destructiveness and violence of human history.

Love your series (3 including the eclipse itself) using the solar eclipse. Each has it's own import. This one is a work of art for sure.
