Totality nearly totally blocked for stadium eclipse viewers

Portland, Oregon, went dark in the middle of the day as the shadow from the moon totally blocked the sun. The last total solar eclipse in the US was in 1979.

The total solar eclipse occurred over a 70-mile-wide (113-km-wide), 2,500-mile-long (4,000-km-long) zone, which is home to around 12 million people, although many more travelled to witness the spectacle.

If you want to see one of the most handsome campuses in the country and our incredible football facilities.

From the "first kiss" in Lincoln Beach, Oregon, to the final moment of totality in Charleston, South Carolina, here are some of the memorable moments of 2017's total solar eclipse. During that time the moon will be passing across the face of the sun.

SIU spokeswoman Rae Goldsmith says some clouds appeared about 6 minutes before the eclipse was to reach totality and "the entire stadium was cheering the clouds away". Chicago will have only a partial eclipse, with a sliver of the sun remaining visible.

For others, the experience of watching an eclipse - even an obscured one - with thousands of others in the stadium was still worth it. Create a pinhole projector or wear eclipse glasses.

The phenomenon bid farewell at Charleston in SC as sky gazers gathered atop the harbour's sea wall caught the final glimpses of the eclipse.
