The Atlantic magazine recently “asked photographers in 24 locations around the globe to point their cameras up to the sky at precisely the same moment—1 p.m. GMT, April 25. At a time when the world is so isolated, these photos are a reminder of what we share.” The resulting article is We Are All Living the Same Moment, written by Gretel Ehrlich.

Gretel Ehrlich is a writer based in Wyoming, Montana, and Hawaii. She is the author of This Cold Heaven, The Solace of Open Spaces, and Facing the Wave, among other works of nonfiction. Her forthcoming essay collection Unsolaced will be released in January.
