A solar eclipse took place in America yesterday (August 21st) for the first time in 38 years and it certainly lived up to the hype.
It was almost the first time that the effects of the full solar eclipse could be seen across the entire nation, from coast to coast.
Jimmy Chin’s photography submission to National Geographic showcases the totality of the eclipse in all its glory.
Randy Olson spent his day observing the observers.
While Charlie Hamilton James definitely captured something truly remarkable as the moon passed in front of the sun.
Many used special glasses, bought for the eclipse, while others used more traditional means. Katie Orlinsky spotted one man using a welder’s mask as he gazed up to the skies.
Ronan Donovan’s entry looks like something straight out of a science fiction film.
