Eclipse photos

A total solar eclipse dazzled citizens of the United States, Mexico and Canada on Monday, giving those lucky enough to have experienced clear skies with a somewhat rare celestial show.

People in Mazatlán, Mexico were the first to see the total solar eclipse at 2:07 p.m. ET. It then continued into Texas and along a “path of totality” spanning more than 100 miles across the width of the continent.

In the U.S., the sun was fully obscured by the moon for a few minutes in 15 states from Texas to Maine, but the eclipse was at least partially visible in 49 states. Alaska was the only state where the eclipse wasn't visible.
