Stunning Images Of The Total Solar Eclipse From Around The World

Side by side pictures of the solar eclipse.

This year’s total solar eclipse has come and gone, and some viewers have managed to capture incredible pictures! Many of us have been looking forward to this spectacular celestial event for a while (and even traveled to see it), so it’s a little bit of a bummer that it’s over. However, now we get to see everyone’s amazing photos and footage from around the world! Those in the path of totality were able to secure some truly awe-inspiring images.

As you’ll be able to see in these pictures, different areas experienced varying levels of darkness during the total solar eclipse. One of the first locations to see a change in the skies was Chile, where viewers grabbed beautifully eerie footage of the event! While the eclipse made its appearance across North America, some saw day turn almost completely into night.

Those who weren’t in the path of totality during the solar eclipse still got some pretty cool pictures! One image from an X user in New York shows just a sliver of sunlight peeking out.

We’re used to seeing crescent moons, but observing the sun take this shape is pretty unusual! Here’s another picture that shows the total solar eclipse in action. This one is from Pittsburgh.

One of the coolest things about the 2024 eclipse is how it brought so many people together to view it. In this mesmerizing video, you can hear a crowd cheering as the sun completely disappears.

Some pictures prove that even cloud coverage couldn’t obsure the majesty of the total solar eclipse. Even from behind grey skies, the moon’s path in front of the sun was still visible.

We hope you got a great view of today’s rare eclipse (using the proper eye protection, of course). If not, these amazing photos and videos are the next best thing!
