People usually want to be in the light, but today, they're flocking to Western Kentucky to be in the darkness. That's because for 2:40 there will be complete darkness and the city of Hopkinsville is the point of greatest eclipse in the entire country. The total eclipse begins at 1:24pm. This is a rare and fascinating event and reminds us just how precise our galaxy is tuned and just how interesting it can become when the celestial orbits vary just a bit. The eclipse brings into focus the grandeur of the universe and points to a reality that is behind all of this. So when you see the sun blotted out today, remember that there is a God. And He has a Son, whose light shines even in the darkness of today's eclipse.
