The South Orange Public Library hosted an Eclipse Viewing Party both inside the library and outside on Monday afternoon, August 21.

While millions of people across the United States experienced a total eclipse, there are only six people who actually witnessed the umbra from space - no prizes for guessing - the astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS). The 70-mile-wide path of totality - where many experienced night for a short period of time - entered the country in OR and crossed 12 states before leaving in SC.

Another option is to keep them as a souvenir; taking them out as a reminder of the day you nearly saw a total solar eclipse behind the clouds. You could buy solar eclipse magnets, bumper stickers, tee-shirts, and more-- all commemorating the biggest day the city of Sweetwater has ever seen!

Sue Wieraba, from Portland, Ore. gets a last looks at the sun the night before the total eclipse in Madras, Ore., Aug. 20, 2017.

Since then all I have seen are one or two lunar eclipse.

Another high school student shared the same excitement.


Astronomers said this was the first solar eclipse to sweep coast-to-coast in 99 years.

"They've been very excited", Dobbs said. This eclipse will also be visible from Mexico and a tiny slice of Canada.

The event was expected to draw one of the largest audiences in human history, including those watching on television and online. For a couple minutes, the sun is shadowed by the moon, leaving brief darkness in the area as the moon shadows the sun.

"I hope that they learn something new and just see how accessible science is", Barbour said. "It's just something that gets you thinking". "It kind of looks like a banana".

Swoope said he couldn't believe he would get to experience an eclipse twice in his lifetime.

While solar eclipses are not uncommon, today's eclipse was the first to transit the entire USA, from west to east, in 99 years.
