After weeks of anticipation, finally, the total solar eclipse was upon us. This magnificent spectacle was the first in the US in nearly a century. From coast to coast, millions of Americans looked towards the sky in amazement, through protective glasses, telescopes, and cameras.
The sky became dark, the temperature lowered and eclipse viewers started to cheer in excitement as a shimmering ring of light radiated around the black moon.
Not everyone was able to see the wondrous event, especially not with the naked eye. These incredible pictures taken all over the U.S show the magnificence of nature at its finest and are worth a look.
