Heavenly Photos Of The Total Solar Eclipse That Was Visible Over The U.S

Updated on 23 August, 2017 at 5:49 pm By

The moon completely blocked out the sun on Monday in the US as millions of people experienced the first coast-to-coast total solar eclipse after a century.

The moon’s shadow raced across the United States, from Oregon to South Carolina. The path of this shadow, known as the path of totality, is where observers saw the moon completely covering the sun.

Look at the path here:

In case you don’t know, total solar eclipses occur when the New Moon comes between the Sun and Earth, and it casts the darkest part of its shadow, the umbra, on Earth.

Here is how the solar eclipse progressed:

Initially, a partial eclipse was seen in Northern Cascades National Park in Washington State.

 

During the partial eclipse, people captured the crescent-shaped shadows.

 

Then, the spectacular moment came when the moon hid the sun.

At this time, the sky goes dark, temperature falls down.



 

For the observers, it was once in a lifetime experience.

Only those located in the path of the moon’s full shadow, called Umbra, could see a total solar eclipse.

 

Someone captured the moment from an airplane, too.

 

All the shades of the universe in one divine picture.
