Default The sadness of this eclipse

So many,many topics within that graphic and unique in human experience of astronomy.

Shortly after the eclipse event ,Mercury will move from left to right of the Sun -

Venus is moving back in behind the Sun in its annual circuit -

Jupiter will have ceased retrograde on June 9th as the Earth has moved on -

The moon is at rare half phase seen through the reflected light of the Earth -

Regulus will soon move from left (evening appearance) to right of the Sun (morning appearance) as all stars lying close to the orbital plane do thereby proving the orbital motion of the Earth and setting the Sun up as a central reference during the eclipse.

All these things are lost presently and waiting to be discovered by those who have a sense of joy instead of their own self-importance hence the sadness for the wider world.
