On August 21st, the continental United States experienced its first full solar eclipse in 38 years, and boy was it beautiful! Millions of people traveled to be in the line of totality, and to witness that spectacular moment when the moon covered the sun and the daytime sky went dark.
Our friends over at Ledlenser, makers of incredibly bright headlamps and flashlights, are big fans of dark skies. So it’s no surprise that they were geeking out over this celestial phenomenon. They sent us their favorite eclipse photos to share with you…
