photo by @chamiltonjames / Charlie Hamilton James - family and friends watch as the solar eclipse almost reaches totality just south of Jackson Hole, Wyoming this morning. The experience was incredible - as the moon moved across the path of the sun the light began to drop and with it the temperature. At totality the sky was almost dark and there was a distinct chill. From all around on the hilltops and in the valleys people were cheering. It was all over in around 2 minutes but for the hundreds of thousands of people that have travelled across the world and throughout the US i’m sure it was well worth the journey. #eclipse #eclipse2017
As the sun rose over Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, thousands of people and their vehicles were jockeying for prime eclipse viewing positions. Hours later they were rewarded with a total eclipse of the sun. This image is a composite of two frames, the morning sunrise of the Tetons and a timed multiple exposure of today's eclipse.

Photo by @dave.krugman Today’s #SolarEclipse traced its path of totality — the geographic line along which the sun is entirely blocked from view by the moon — across the United States, from the woods of Oregon to the fields of South Carolina. Its rarity inspired millions to turn their eyes and lenses skyward, including New York-based photographer Dave Krugman (@dave.krugman), who made a trek to Nashville, Tennessee, to see this first total solar eclipse in the US in 38 years. “This was a flashpoint moment I didn’t want to miss,” says Dave. “Seeing the sky go dark and a ring of fire suddenly appear was an extraordinary experience. The light was eerie, otherworldly. It’s surely a moment I’ll never forget.” 🌞🌝 Watch our Instagram story featuring @billnye to see scenes and views of the solar eclipse across the US. 😎
Photo by @jimmy_chin Jackson WY 11:38am 8.21.17 What a moment...the magic of the universe unveiled. I wish I could say I was waiting for exactly the right timing on this one....but I was chasing ten kids around the backyard and running by the camera randomly hitting the shutter button. This was the only frame that looked remotely like this. Just reinforces that serendipity can be your best friend when it comes to photography. @natgeo #eclipse
•💫🚶🏾🌖• Ring Of Fire • This was undoubtedly the most fantastic natural phenomenon I've had the honor of experiencing. So ominous. Watching the sun slowly get swallowed up by this dark mass. Looking forward to hopefully chasing more eclipses to the end of the world. Stay Adventurous Dear Friends!! . . . .
