Monday's eclipse cut a 70-mile-wide path of totality from the Oregon coast, through the nation's midsection and into South Carolina, offering viewers in those regions some spectacular sights.
Some avid eclipse watchers traveled hundreds of miles to get the best view of the moon as it moved between Earth and the sun, blocking sunlight for as much as 2 1/2 minutes. It's the first coast-to-coast full eclipse since 1918.
From Total Eclipse Moonshine to custom t-shirts and buttons, see how communities in and near the path of totality celebrated the rare celestial event.
