SOLAR ECLIPSE FROM SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

A total solar eclipse made contact in Oregon just after 1:15 p.m. Eastern time on Monday, darkening skies as the moon obscured the sun and cast a long shadow across Earth. It concluded its path just before 3 p.m. in South Carolina, where clouds obscured the moment of totality. Scientists are hoping their studies of this eclipse will lead to important discoveries about the sun’s mysterious corona, which burns more than a million degrees hotter than the sun’s surface. Here are a few more photos to add to your solar eclipse experience. Who knew the shadows through the leaves would provide the perfect viewing medium?
