Spectators across the United States were able to catch pictures and a glimpse of the moon passing in front of the sun during the solar eclipse on Aug. 21.
The best viewing conditions, where skies were mainly clear, occurred across the Pacific Northwest in places like Portland, Oregon; Boise, Idaho; and Casper, Wyoming.
"Clouds, showers and thunderstorms created some viewing difficulties across a large portion of the Upper Midwest from the eastern Dakotas through Minnesota and down into parts of Iowa and Nebraska," AccuWeather Meteorologist Brian Edwards said.
Viewers with their protective glasses were also able to see totality in the eastern U.S.
"Partly cloudy skies allowed for good viewing conditions along the path of totality through the Tennessee Valley and into the Carolinas," Edwards said.
