What is truly beautiful to you? Is it the face of someone you love? The first several notes of your favorite song? Or perhaps it’s a sunny day.

If you’re Frank Close, it’s none of these things. In fact, that sunny day is the last thing he wants to look at when he seeks beauty. He prefers the opposite: the sun being blocked out, the light being hidden, the magic and mystery of a solar eclipse.

They only come around every 18 months, but Frank has still managed to see five solar eclipses. And he plans to see several more before he dies. He can’t think of anything quite as beautiful.
