Something I've never witnessed before (not the eclipse)...
22

While visiting my daughter's house in East Texas last week, I happened upon a molting Cicada on a piece of firewood. I've seen a ton of the empty shells in my lifetime but never before, the actual molting process.

The molting Cicada looks like some kind of 'alien' from a sci-fi movie.

Trivia: Cicada's live on every continent on earth, except Antarctica. They can live up to 17 years, and the male's call can exceed 120 decibels in volume.
