19 Incredible Photos of the 2017 Solar Eclipse

You may have heard already, but yesterday on the 21st August 2017, 14 states across America experienced two minutes of darkness as a solar eclipse moved across North America during the middle of the day. The eclipse took 100 minutes to cross all 14 states, covering a staggering 2,500 miles during that time.

Caused by the moon blocking out the sun the solar phenomenon not only provided scientists an opportunity to study it’s effect on the sun, Earth and moon but also allowed photographers to capture some truly amazing shots. Here we’ve rounded up 17 of the most impressive.
