Washington (August 22, 2017): Millions of Americans gasped and groaned Monday as the first coast-to-coast total solar eclipse in 99 years zoomed across the country.
On Monday, some parts of the United States experienced a total eclipse where the moon completely blocked the sun for a short time.
The United States will see its next total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024.
Crowding into the 70-mile-wide band of eclipse totality, people had thronged the shadow’s 3,000-mile-long path, camped out in tents, parking lots, and football stadiums.
The US President Donald Trump and the First Lady also saw the solar eclipse wearing protective eyewear.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau shared an image of himself looking at the “amazing” solar eclipse with appropriate glasses on.
