It was a historic moment as an incident which had not happened for over a century in the United States was witnessed yesterday. Day turned to night for two minutes during the eclipse, visible in a 70-mile-wide (113-km-wide), 2,500-mile-long (4,000-km-long) zone in the US, drawing one of the largest audiences in human history.

President Donald Trump but he was mocked for glancing skyward without protective eyewear at a point.

The last time such a spectacle unfolded from the Pacific to the Atlantic coast was in 1918. The last total eclipse seen anywhere in the United States took place in 1979.

The ‘Great American Eclipse’ captivated millions around the world – it was the most-observed and most-photographed eclipse in history.

The next eclipse takes place on July 2, 2019 – crossing Chile and Argentina.

And Americans won’t have to wait long for the next US eclipse – an event that many scientists believe will be even more impressive than Monday’s natural wonder.
