What a cool experience!

The last time a solar eclipse swept the country was back in 1918 -- and everyone again experienced it Monday, Aug. 21, 2017. The path of totality, where some areas had complete darkness, passed from Oregon into the Midwest and to the Carolinas.

Areas outside, including the Tampa Bay region, experienced a partial eclipse. Still, temperatures dropped and with the proper glasses, it was an awesome celestial sight!
