For the first time in decades, a solar eclipse was visible to millions of people in the United States.
Across the country and here in East Texas people were looking to the sky with special lenses to catch a glimpse of the moon passing between the Earth and the Sun.
East Texas was expected to see as much as 80% coverage during the eclipse.
Many members of the KLTV team joined our live coverage from the Center for Earth and Space Science Education at Tyler Junior College.
