America has experienced a total solar eclipse, from coast to coast, for the first time in nealy a century.
On Aug. 21st, millions of people made their way outside to be part of the moment in history.
As the moon slowly took bites out of the sun, the sky grew darker and the temperature fell.
Totality was achieved first in Oregon, on the west coast of the country, and the show came to end in South Carolina, on the southeast coast.
The pass of totality spread 70 miles wide and swept across 14 states in just over an hour and a half.
It is expected to have drawn one of the largest audiences in human history, including social media and broadcasting.
