Solar Eclipse Photos 2017: Stunning Images from Across the United States

Depending on when you are reading this, the Great American Eclipse is either currently taking place, just took place or took place a while ago and you're feeling wistful about the first time an eclipse crossed the United States in 99 years. The entire continuous United States experienced at least a partial eclipse Monday afternoon, and those within a 70-mile-wide band crossing from Oregon to South Carolina had the pleasure of watching the moon black out the sun entirely. It's a pretty dang significant event, and you're goddamn right a bunch of awesome pictures were taken.
