Solar Eclipse in Boston, Massachusetts: Best Photos from the State

What the eclipse might look like in areas of totality.

Boston, Massachusetts was only treated to a partial solar eclipse today, but it was still stunning. The eclipse began at 1:28 p.m. local time with a peak at 2:46 p.m., and will end by 3:59 p.m. The next one is in 2024.

A total solar eclipse happens when the moon’s disk completely covers the sun’s disk in the sky. For a couple minutes, the sun is shadowed by the moon, leaving brief darkness in the area as the moon shadows the sun. It’s a unique and fascinating experience.

From Oregon to South Carolina, a stretch of about 70 miles in America had a “path of totality” to see the solar eclipse 100 percent. This included areas in Idaho, Illinois, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Tennessee, Kentucky, North and South Carolina, and Georgia. In areas where there was a full eclipse, the temperature could drop as much as 10 degrees.

It was a little cloudy in some areas.

But even with the clouds, the eclipse was still beautiful.

The next eclipse will come to the U.S. in 2024.
