For less than a few hours on Monday, August 21st, our pals across the United States witnessed a rare astronomical event—a total solar eclipse whose path cut clear across America. We asked our pals to submit their shots of this beautiful event and have their friends vote on the best image. While we received many beautiful photos, Jim Hartsing’s was the clear winner! See the photo for yourself below.
