Yesterday, August 21 was a remarkable day for Americans as they witnessed a complete solar eclipse, the first to happen since 1918.
Darkness swept across the United States as the eclipse, traveled from coast to coast, ending just before 3pm EDT in South Carolina.
People came out enmasse, including the first family and celebrities to watch the eclipse travel, using their special eyewear.
Over the next 90 minutes, the total eclipse traveled through 14 different states until ending in South Carolina. The other 36 states were all treated to a partial solar eclipse, where the moon covered only a part of the sun.
