Photos of the Oreo eclipse in America - 21st August 2017

Today being 21st August was a solar eclipse in Unites states of America. Solar eclipse is an interesting natural occurrence where the moon shades our planet earth from the sun.

it was a day of nature fun for the American citizens as the stood in crowd to watch the  eclipse. Donald Trump was also present to see the whole thing occur. The eclipse which is nicknamed Eclipse Oreo occurred long time ago, about 99 years ago and now repeats itself. Google tech giant too gave birth to a new Android Operating system - Android 8.0 Oreo, see TechDemi for details. The OS was named after the oreo cookie and launched today during the Oreo eclipse - coincidental?

The eclipse began in Oregon at just after 9am PDT, and by 10.20am, the sun was completely blocked out except for a halo-like solar corona plunging the area into twilight.
Over the next 90 minutes, the total eclipse traveled through 14 different states until ending in South Carolina. The other 36 states were all treated to a partial solar eclipse, where the moon covers only a part of the sun. At one point, the International Space Station was clearly visible in front of the eclipsed sun, while a plane was highlighted against the darkened sun, illuminated only by the solar corona.
