It came from Tahiti--and now it has touched the shadow of the Moon.  On April 8, 2024, the students of Earth to Sky Calculus launched this black pearl into a total eclipse of the sun over Texas.  Riding on a cosmic ray research ballon, the pearl was 86,564 feet high when the Moon's shadow arrived. Lunar darkness swallowed the pearl for 3 minutes and 45 seconds. Ultimately, the pearl traveled 118,443 feet above the path of totality almost directly above the town of Telegraph, TX.


Measuring 9 mm in diameter, the pearl has an 18K sterling silver clasp and is suspended from a matching 925 Sterling Silver chain. It comes with a greeting card showing the pearl in flight and telling the story of its journey to the edge of space during the total eclipse.
