The Best Solar Eclipse Photos From Around the Internet

Not everyone could travel to the thin band of totality. Luckily, there were tons of photographers ready to capture the moment.

If you haven't heard, the moon passed in front of the sun today—and it was something else! Actually, I don't know. I wasn't in the path of totality, so like many of us, I'm taking solace in the thousands of photos completely consuming the internet right now.

Below are a few shots from other intrepid photographers on the PM.com staff across the country, from Oregon to South Carolina, as well as other great shots from around the internet that've been easing my aching FOMO.

[Note: We'll be updating this post as the eclipse crosses the U.S.]
