A rare total eclipse crossed the northern American continent on Monday, April 8, from Mexico to Canada via the United States. In city after city, the cries of amazed crowds followed as they were plunged into darkness in broad daylight.

In Texas, some 2,000 people came to Stonehenge II Park, in the town of Ingram, which was in the “path of totality” of the eclipse. In total, the Moon's shadow took about an hour and a half to travel over the three countries.
