‘Nothing prepares you for the actual moment’: Space.com editor travels from London to Rochester to experience eclipse | Space


Space.com editor travels from London to Rochester to experience eclipse.

People from around the country and around the world are starting to arrive in Rochester for the eclipse.

One woman traveled more than 3,500 miles to get here — and she told News10NBC it wasn’t easy.

“Bit of a rocky journey,” said Daisy Dobrijevic, editor of Space.com.

Brean: “So what are you anticipating?”
Daisy Dobrijevic, editor Space.com: “I honestly do not know what to expect. I know the science behind it. I know what it would look like. I know what other people have said from previous accounts of seeing eclipses. but I think nothing prepares you for the actual moment of totality and seeing it with your own eyes. … I have no idea what my emotions will be.
