On Monday, August 21, 2017, millions of people were staring at the same thing through doofy glasses, as they tried to catch a glimpse of the solar eclipse. Not only that, they also immortalized the awe-inspiring moment in photos, and Bored Panda has collected the best of them in case you missed the phenomenon or can’t get enough of it.
A total solar eclipse covered a narrow portion of the United States from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. And a partial one was visible across the entire continent of North America, as well as in parts of South America, Africa, and Europe. This was the first time since 1918 when North America experienced the path of totality from coast to coast.

Today I got to witness, surrounded by some of my best friends on earth and enveloped in their love, something truly magical. Something that defined “awe-inspiring.” I will never forget it. We are so very small…•I also can’t believe I get to live in an era where I can take a photo like this on my PHONE. What the what?! Amazing
