by Tessa Harvey

I know, I know, you've probably seen the awesome news everywhere, but guess what? The solar eclipse is Monday. Everyone seems to be talking about the 2017 solar eclipse, and for good reason. All over North America, people are gathering in watch parties, science museums, and eclipse tours to view the stunning event. This is kind of a big deal, so get ready to be amazed. Of course, a breathtaking event as such would not be complete without photos of the solar eclipse taking over social media.

The solar eclipse has been described as a life-changing, otherworldly view; something spectacular that not even words can describe. Those who have the opportunity to watch from the path of totality are in for the experience of a lifetime. Apparently, it can be hard to capture the moment on film and do it justice, but luckily, there are some really talented professionals out there who proved that wrong.

If you're at work, sleeping, or just plain old missed your area's chance to peep this amazing sight, don't worry. All over the country, eclipse watchers and chasers were prepped, with their glasses on and cameras out, and they did not disappoint. These 15 photos are absolutely magical.
