On August 21, parts of the United States are getting treated to a total solar eclipse — when the moon crosses between the Earth and the sun, and blocks out the sun’s light. The full effect is only visible from a 70-mile-wide band of the country, stretching from Oregon to South Carolina.

Everyone else in the US is seeing some degree of a partial eclipse, weather permitting.

Check out photos of the phenomenon from across the country below. We will continue to update this post throughout the day.
