On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America was treated to an eclipse of the sun. Anyone, within the path of totality, saw one of nature’s most awe-inspiring sights - a total solar eclipse. This path, where the moon completely covered the sun and the sun's tenuous atmosphere, showing only the corona - stretched from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. Observers outside this path saw a partial solar eclipse where the moon covered part of the sun's disk.
