Photographers within the 70-mile wide path of totality captured the rare and striking celestial phenomenon, as the moon moved between the sun and Earth and completely blocked the solar surface for a couple minutes, casting a dark shadow on our planet. In areas with clear skies, the sun’s outer atmosphere, which is usually obscured by glare, appeared as a ring of ethereal white wisps around the moon while it blocked the sun. Bright stars and planets also appeared in the darkened daytime sky.
These photos capture the amazing spectacle not forgetting to add a bit of artistry on their own. The total eclipse was visible on the narrow portion of the United States from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina, but partial solar eclipse was visible across the entirety of America.
