Scenes From The Solar Eclipse

For anyone in the path of totality, the solar eclipse can be an exciting moment to get a front-row seat to one of astronomy’s most incredible coincidences.

These events draws people from around the world to the path of totality, hoping to witness the magical moment when the world goes dark.
