Marking the moon's march across the sun

  • , meet the fiber team

Posted by

Like most of America, Google Fiber was totally fascinated by today’s total solar eclipse.

From coast to coast, we saw our offices and Fiber Spaces do something special to mark the moon’s path across the sun, whether heading outdoors to take it all in or sharing NASA’s live feed with our customers over Fiber’s superfast network in our Fiber spaces.

Two our Fiber Cities were in the “Path of Totality” -- in Nashville (100%), we marked the moment on the roof of our office -- with approved glasses and moon pies and, of course, Music City’s own eclipse playlist. Kansas City (100%) stayed on the ground floor, heading en masse to the City Market Total Eclipse Party together to check out the show.


We didn’t let a smaller percentage of eclipse keep us from enjoying the unusual site, either. In Charlotte (98%), we hosted a party with all the appropriate accoutrement.

And in Durham (92.6%), we also took to the roof with their glasses to see what we could see.

No matter where we watched, it was a pretty great show. Thanks, moon! Thanks, sun!

Until next time. . . in 2024!
