Yesterday, Americans set out to various corners of the country to catch a glimpse of the total solar eclipse. Those lucky enough to be in the path of totality prepared for an apocalyptic two minutes of darkness. Beachgoers and sunbathers swapped their Ray-Bans for pairs of NASA-certified frames. In busy cities, sidewalks and rooftops overflowed as thousands clutched disheveled cereal boxes to their faces as makeshift sun viewers.

It almost felt like a midsummer New Year's Eve as people from all walks of life gathered to count down to a moment together. For a brief time, we put our routines on hold, turned our attention upward, and took a collective gasp in awe of the world around us.

Before we kick off the countdown to the 2024 eclipse, let's revisit some of the most stunning shots from the day.

It's been over 3 hours since the solar eclipse passed over #JacksonHole and I'm still beaming. That was truly like nothing I've ever seen before! I took a risk for this photo, the full #totality lasted about 100 seconds which wasn't much time. This photo here is an in-camera double exposure of the #solarEclipse, 2 pictures exposed onto one frame in camera, no photoshop, all taken on a single RAW file. I first shot the eclipse and then turned my camera to @alexmason #highlining. There was a lot to mess up on my side, 2 different exposures, eclipse placement, 4 ProFoto strobes, timing Alex and having very little time to pull it off! The margin for error was slim and I was for sure nervous, I shot as many as I could before the moment passed. I'm grateful that it all worked out! Huge thank you to @redbull for believing in me to get the shot, Alex for walking the line, @andylewisglobal for all the laughs/expertise/rigging, @andybardon for being all around rad, @skydick for producing such a creative shoot, @jacksonhole for making the locations reality, my lovely wife @danahrichardson and the entire film crew and team! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜Š

2:30 of totality. Better than anything I could've imagined. #eclipse #totality
