    Actress and Royal Caribbean Adventurist Shay Mitchell bears witness to the Great American Eclipse aboard the Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas, on August 21. The ship sailed along the path of totality, offering passengers an unobstructed view at sea.

    Millions of people across the globe (and even in space!) watched the sun get “swallowed” by the moon on August 21, 2017.

    A total solar eclipse, dubbed the "Great American Eclipse," was seen across a narrow portion of the contiguous United States from Lincoln Beach, Oregon, to Charleston, South Carolina. In other countries, the celestial event was visible only as a partial eclipse.
