Eclipse: 'Take your breath away' moment will cherish for my lifetime'

Liberty viewer listens to voice in a dream . . . and goes to Cookeville, TN

By Rita King

Had a dream last night, remember being told to go see the eclipse at 100%. A voice said, "You're this close...GO!!" I live in Liberty.

I listened, roused up my sister this morning and we set out to Cookeville, TN.

Traffic was fine, no problems. Found a nice spot in Zaxby's parking lot along with some friendly Somerset eclipse viewers and Zaxby's staff.

Lawn chairs, chicken, eclipse glasses and a clear sky. What could be better?

We watched and waited, not very exciting until the moon was at 100% coverage and WHAMMO!!! Gasps, glasses came off and all peered at the most spectacular sight EVER!

It was truly MAGICAL!! Became dark enough for stars and that black moon in front of the sun. Words can't describe... it was a 'take your breath away' moment I will cherish for my lifetime!! 100% worth it!!!
