On Monday, August 21, 2017, millions of people were staring at the same thing through doofy glasses, as they tried to catch a glimpse of the solar eclipse.
Not only that, they also immortalized the awe-inspiring moment in photos. And we have collection the best of them in case you missed the phenomenon or can’t get enough of it.
A total solar eclipse covered a narrow portion of the United States from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. And a partial one was visible across the entire continent of North America. Also as well as in parts of South America, Africa, and Europe. This was the first time since 1918 when THE UNITED STATES experienced the path of totality from coast to coast.
The most amazing thing about any total solar eclipse is how it differs from location to location, eclipse to eclipse. No two are the same. The duration of totality varies, the natural phenomena around you will be different every time. And the environment you stand in here on Earth defines the experience as much as the alignment of the moon and the sun above. The singular uniqueness of any given total solar eclipse, in a distinct position on the globe, is the reason so many people devote their lives to chasing the shadow of the moon all over the world.
