WHY DOES EVERYONE ON TWITTER HATE FRIENDS?
Now, everyone at Twitter — and on Earth — gets to admire Carmichaels beautiful work.
Now, everyone at Twitter — and on Earth — gets to admire Carmichael's beautiful work.
Carmichael was ready to bribe a passenger for a window seat. Luckily, he didn't have to — and the entire flight crew got on board with his mission.
Southwest doesn't offer pre-assigned seats, so Carmichael came prepared to pay somebody for one facing the right window.
But once he explained his vision to the flight crew, they assured him he would get a great seat — and the captain actually cleaned Carmichael's window to make sure it was crystal clear.
The pilots actually circled the eclipse a few times so passengers could witness the once-in-a-lifetime event. That's when Carmichael captured his stunning photo.
"In photography, it's very rare for something you envision to manifest itself, let alone to turn out even better than you had hoped," he said.
"I had never felt more relieved, grateful, and excited in my life. Against all odds, it came together. It felt meant to be — and literally changed my life,” he told My Modern Met.
"We're all one. We're all connected. And if you keep viewing the world as a pale blue dot, as Carl Sagan would say, it humbles you — and we all could use an ego check. And take care of each other" he said.
Carmichael shot over 1,200 photos of the eclipse in two minutes.
He spent one year processing the photos to create the iconic shot.
Inc. called Carmichael's photo — captured over the Snake River in the Rocky Mountains — "history's most amazing photo."
Carter Emmart, Director of Astrovisualization at the American Museum of Natural History, said the image is "a ladder to space."
"In Jon's photograph," Emmart said, "one gets the linkage to space, with greater landscape detail than we get from Earth's orbit."
He spent one year processing the 1,200 photos, and the result? A striking mosaic called "108," which he unveiled at Twitter's headquarters in August 2019.
Introduced by Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, Carmichael talked about the inspiration behind "108."
He emphasized the vitality of the total eclipse to Twitter's audience: "This was one of the most uniting moments in United States history. For one day, every news media outlet you could think of — ABC, NBC, CBS, even FOX News — covered a positive story."
"That's what astronomy does. It's instilled in our DNA. It's who we are," he continued.
