EMJ’s solar eclipse photos from across the U.S.

​A total eclipse of the sun occurred across the U.S. on Monday, August 21, and several EMJ team members captured photos of the historic event.

During the solar eclipse, 14 states across the U.S. were in the path of totality and experienced more than two minutes of darkness in the middle of the day—with a partial eclipse viewable all across North America. The eclipse spanned the country from west to east, giving many the opportunity to see the event in ranging forms, from totality to a mid-day crescent.

If you missed it, the next total solar eclipse visible over the continental U.S. will take place on April 8, 2024, with the path of the shadow making its way up from Mexico, through Texas and ultimately up to New York and into Canada.
