(Newser) – Americans were gazing in wonder through telescopes, cameras, and protective glasses Monday as the moon began blotting out the midday sun in the first full-blown solar eclipse to sweep the US from coast to coast in nearly a century. Scientists said the eclipse would cast a shadow that would race 2,600 miles through 14 states, entering near Lincoln City, Ore., at 1:16pm EDT, moving diagonally across the heartland over Casper, Wyo.; Carbondale, Ill.; and Nashville, Tenn., and then exiting near Charleston, SC, at 2:47pm EDT, per the AP. Check out 14 amazing photos of the eclipse in our gallery.
