The Solar Eclipse 2017 - Path Across The United States

Californians were excited to witness partial solar eclipse on Monday, August 21st, 2017. As early as 9:00 p.m., almost everyone was ready with their eclipse shades to watch and enjoy - what could be - a lifetime experience that left everyone in awe.

Though California was not in the path for total solar eclipse (when the moon completely blocks the sun) - like what we saw in Oregon and South Carolina-, it was a dazzling experience to at least get that weird feel.

This is the first time since 1918 that a total eclipse crossed the entire continental United States. It was also expected to be the most viewed eclipse ever.

To see what eclipse totality looks like, watch this Oregon video that was posted by The New York Times.
