Millions of sky watchers took to rooftops and backyards, parks and parking lots today to get a glimpse of the first total solar #eclipse to pass across the United States from coast to coast in nearly a century. Thornton Tomasetti employees from Cupertino, California, to Boston, Massachusetts were among those watching as the moons shadow passed over the Earth. Employees in our Denver office were joined by friends and clients from Ninyo & Moore and RMPS to view the eclipse from the offices terrace (left). The city experienced a little more than 90 percent totality, so we had a really cool show, Administrative Assistant Rebecca Gholson said. In Kansas City, staff held a viewing party near Union Station, a few blocks from our office (bottom right). Early morning thunderstorms threatened to spoil the celestial show. Luckily, the rain stopped and the sun peeked through the clouds as we were walking over, Executive Assistant Tiffany Thompson said. The break in the weather lasted about 30 minutes, allowing for optimal viewing. As darkness approached, we heard the cicadas sing loudly from the trees, Tiffany said. It was truly amazing. A few minutes after the eclipse was over, the clouds returned. Not all of our locations, however, used special eclipse glasses. Being engineers, there were a good number of homemade viewing devices as well. Project Engineer Ian King developed a pinhole camera that got plenty of use in the New York, Wall Street office (top right). As the eclipse moves over the Atlantic, some Thornton Tomasetti offices are already talking about plans for the next U.S. solar event in 2024. Good thing the wait wont be quite as long. #thorntontomasetti
