Partial eclipse evident in West Columbia, Monday afternoon

A total solar eclipse occurred on Monday. It was visible across some North American states. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun and obscures the Sun’s image from Earth.

There was a “substantial partial eclipse” in West Columbia, according to West Columbia City Councilman David Moye. The skies became shadowy and there was a type of eerie feeling. Moye took a photo of the sun as the moon moved in front it, at about 3:10 p.m. Monday. That was the peak time of the eclipse, Moye said. He took the photo from WECO Bottle and Biergartin on Meeting Street. He used his 2017 City of West Columbia Eclipse glasses and used his cell phone with a 20X Zoom. The photo is below:
