The Transcript For This Page
Wide panel. To the left, we see Norman and the girls from behind, looking out the window. To the right, the Sun is 3/4 obscured by the Earth's silhouette. The Earth's disc is surrounded by a thin bright ring that is its atmosphere being illuminated by the Sun. (Remember the Sun's disk is about ¼ the apparent size of the Earth's disc.)
Norman: Look, it's starting.
Reverse angle, Norman and the girls looking out through the window. We see a reflection in the glass of the totally eclipsed Sun, its corona streaming around Earth's disc. Inside the apartment the lighting is subdued, so the three characters are softly back-lit.
Caption: 'I gotta admit, it was an impressive sight.'
Side shot focusing on Robyn inside the apartment, putting her hand on the window glass, which is starting to fog. We can see Norman's hand on her shoulder.
Caption: 'As the Earth's shadow fell across us, I touched the window and could feel it rapidly cooling.'
