To watch the moon cover 70 percent of the sun, Brooklynites gathered in various viewing parties throughout the city.
The photos did not disappoint! First a slideshow of pictures from Red Hook’s Louis Valentino, Jr. Park & Pier. Photos courtesy of Dina Rabiner.
Next, Brooklynites took to social media to share their photos of the #solareclipse2017.
Prospect Park was a popular viewing location.
Hey guys where are you watching the #solareclipse2017 from?

Even children wanted to be a part of the action!
Let’s not forget Luna and Brooklyn Bridge Parks.
Dogs got in on the eclipse fun too!
If you’re the announcer for WWE, like Mike Rome, then maybe you too can watch the eclipse from the top of the Barclays Center!
Not everyone was able to grab eclipse glasses, but they had great solutions — DIY viewers made with cereal boxes, welding masks, and even paper plates.

If cereal boxes weren’t available, creativity was.
Where did you watch the Great American Solar Eclipse?
