On Monday morning in North America, the entire continent seemed to stop and stare up in the sky in awe. It was the first solar eclipse visible from North America since 1979 and passed over the entire continent. In specific, a strip of totality reaching from Oregon to South Carolina witnessed the breathtaking moment of total darkness as the Moon blocked the sun entirely.
Allegedly over a million people trekked to Oregon, a popular West coast hotspot to view the solar eclipse's moments of totality. But 3,000 people in specific headed to Oregon Eclipse festival at the Big Summit Prairie along with 300 artists ranging from bass to house to trance for a weekend leading entirely up to the moment of totality, which happened around 10AM PST.
